Is it legal to fire workers because they’re LGBTQ? The Supreme Court takes it up. So do we. https://www.wbur.org/onpoint/2019/10/09/lgbtq-workplace-discrimination-supreme-court What will be the outcome of this since kavanaugh is now a justice? Simple answer and I'm appalled this is even still a question. "'It’s sexual orientation — it’s not sex,' Justice Alito said at another point during the arguments, underscoring that Congress and the American public have long understood these forms of discrimination to be distinct. Discriminating against someone because they are a man or a woman, he said, is not the same as discriminating against someone for being gay or lesbian. "The cases before the justices on Tuesday are expected to provide the first indication of how the court will approach gay rights since two appointees of President Trump, Justices Neil M. Gorsuch and Brett M. Kavanaugh, joined the bench. Many expect the court to take a less expansive view since the retirement last year of Justice Anthony M. Kennedy, its swing justice and the author of all four of the major decisions protecting gay men and lesbians, including the 2015 ruling that established a constitutional right to same-sex marriage."
