You Can Still Be Fired for Being LGBTQ in Some States, but Maybe the Supreme Court Will Fix That

Evil HR Lady

Indiana and Wisconsin recognize sexual orientation as a protected class, but not gender identity. Discrimination against people for their sexual orientation is wrong, right? We should hire, promote, and pay people based on what they contribute to the business not on who they date (or don’t date). But, federal law isn’t clear and right now, LGBTQ people only have clear protections in place in some states.

The Supreme Court has not yet ruled on this, so the ruling only technically applies to people within the states of Illinois, Indiana, and Wisconsin, but you should pay attention regardless of where you live. The Seventh Circuit court issued a landmark ruling that stated that sexual orientation falls under “race, color, religion, sex, or national origin” in Title VII of the 1964 Civil Rights Act.
