Court: Civil Rights Act Protects Orientation - The Daily Beast

 





 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

"A federal appeals court in Chicago ruled on Tuesday that the 1964 Civil Rights Act also protects LGBT employees from workplace discrimination. This marks the first time that a federal appellate court has come to this conclusion. The 7th U.S. Circuit Court of Appeals in Chicago came down with this ruling just three weeks after a three-judge panel in Alabama ruled that employers are not prohibited from discriminating against employees based on sexual orientation. The case stems from a lawsuit involving Indiana teacher Kimberly Hively, who alleged that Ivy Tech Community College didn't hire her full time because she is a lesbian. The issue could still go to the Supreme Court at some point in the future."
