DOJ to Supreme Court: Transgender Workers Are Not Protected by Civil Rights Law - 28 days ago


​Transgender discrimination is not prohibited by Title VII of the Civil Rights Act of 1964, the U.S. Department of Justice (DOJ) told the Supreme Court in an Aug. 16 brief. The DOJ's stance directly contradicts that of the Equal Employment Opportunity Commission (EEOC), which argued on behalf of a transgender worker, whose case is now before the high court, that Title VII does prohibit transgender discrimination.
