Sexual Orientation and Gender Identity (SOGI) Discrimination

By Shawn M. Joost

Last year, the U.S. Supreme Court ruled that discrimination based on sexual orientation or gender identity was a violation of federal law prohibiting discrimination and harassment on the basis of sex. Of course, these were already express protected categories under California’s Fair Employment and Housing Act.

The federal Equal Employment Opportunity Commission recently issued a fact sheet and FAQs on such sex discrimination, and a fact sheet on facilities and bathroom access with tools and guidance for employers on these topics. You may find these resources helpful.
