The U.S. Supreme Court has slated Tuesday, Oct. 8, as the date when it will hear arguments on if Title VII of the Civil Rights Act of 1964 applies to cases of anti-LGBT discrimination, The Washington Blade reported.
The consolidated case of Zarda v. Altitude Express and Bostock v. Clayton County will determine if sexual-orientation discrimination is a form of sex discrimination. Also, Harris Funeral Homes v. EEOC will determine if anti-transgender discrimination is a form of sex discrimination.
In addition to Title VII implications, the U.S. Supreme Court uling will affect all federal laws barring discrimination on the basis of sex, including Title IX of the Education Amendments of 1972 and the Fair Housing Act.
