The U.S. Supreme Court ruled that federal anti-discrimination laws protect gay and transgender employees. The Supreme Court’s decision means that employers cannot discriminate against an employee on the basis of their sexual orientation or gender identity. Employees cannot be treated less favorably in the workplace, when applying for a job, or going through the hiring process because of their sexual orientation or gender identity. Employers should update their employment policies and practices to ensure they comply with this change in anti-discrimination law.
