Ruling extends Title VII protections for sexual orientation and gender identity in the workplace
Employment Attorney Vincent White discusses the historic Supreme Court ruling that extends the federal protections against Gender-Based Discrimination at Work to also include Sexual Orientation and Gender Identity.

This is even more signigicant for members of the LBGT Community in the 30 states where local laws still do not specifically protect them. Read More about LGBT Rights in the Workplace, or see our Video library.
