Abstract

This book chapter provides an overview of the legal remedies currently available to LGBT employees who experience discrimination. In addition to recent developments in sex discrimination jurisprudence, it addresses an array of other claims that may be available to employees who do not live in a state that explicitly prohibits sexual orientation and/or gender identity discrimination. The chapter also addresses the impact of the EEOC's recent decisions in Baldwin v. Foxx and Macy v. Holder, and the extent to which those opinions create opportunities for further arguments for coverage of sexual orientation and gender identity discrimination under Title VII.

Note: for a more up-to-date discussion of arguments that anti-LGBT discrimination is, categorically, sex discrimination, see https://ssrn.com/abstract=3023479.

Keywords: Employment Discrimination, LGBT Equality, Employment Law
