Five Things to Watch in the Supreme Court's Case on Gender and Employment Discrimination

Gender.jpgEarlier this month, the Supreme Court heard arguments for three cases that begged the question of whether employees were protected from discrimination by their employers based on sexual orientation and gender discrimination. The three cases,  Altitude Express Inc. v. Zarda, Bostock v. Clayton County, and R.G. & G.R. Harris Funeral Homes v. EEOC, consisted of two cases where two gay men alleged they were fired because of their sexual orientation and one case where a transgender woman alleged she was fired when she announced she would embrace her gender identity at her workplace. The Court's decisions will be historical. Here are five things to watch as the case evolves, whether you an employer or employee.
