The Supreme Court of the United States has ruled that the prohibition of discrimination based on sexual orientation in the workplace is protected by the federal Civil Rights Act of 1964. The unanimous decision of the court is a victory for the LGBTQ+ community and means that employers cannot fire, refuse to hire, or discriminate against workers based on their sexual orientation or gender identity. The ruling has been celebrated by various civil rights groups and advocates for equality, and is expected to have a significant impact on protecting the labor rights of the LGBTQ+ community throughout the country.
