Pursuing accountability for discrimination at work

Despite the adoption of laws prohibiting employment discrimination, people in Florida continue to be mistreated, fired or denied work because of their protected characteristics. There are legal options that people can pursue if they are subject to discrimination at work, especially intentional discrimination based on race, color, sex, national origin, disability, religion or genetic information. Sex discrimination can include not only traditional gender discrimination but also unjust treatment based on pregnancy, sexual orientation or gender identity. As a rule, legal remedies are designed to put the victim in a position as if the discrimination had not occurred.

Major companies urge Supreme Court to act on LGBT rights

Title VII of the Civil Rights Act prohibits most employers in Florida and around the country from discriminating against workers based on their race, religion, gender, or national origin, but the landmark 1964 bill makes no mention of gender identity or sexual orientation. During the Obama administration, the Department of Justice was committed to extending these protections to gay and transgender workers, but recent developments suggest that President Trump has abandoned these plans.
