LOS ANGELES – SAG-AFTRA applauds today’s Supreme Court ruling in Bostock v. Clayton County, Georgia, which holds that under Title VII of the Civil Rights Act of 1964, employment discrimination on the “basis of sex” encompasses discrimination based on sexual orientation and gender identity.

Firing someone for being LGBTQ is now illegal in all 50 states and the District of Columbia. Prior to today’s landmark ruling, close to 30 states offered no protection whatsoever and LGBTQ people could (and did) get fired for absolutely no reason.

This is one of the most significant decisions about employment law in many years and a long overdue blow to state-sanctioned discrimination.
