WHAT WE’RE WATCHING
AT ODDS – The DOJ today is expected to tell the U.S. Supreme Court justices that federal civil rights laws don’t protect gay, lesbian and transgender workers from workplace discrimination. Main Justice has advanced that argument in lower courts, at odds with the EEOC’s litigation and policy stance. It remains to be seen whether the EEOC will sign on to the government’s brief at the high court. The cases, which the justices agreed to hear in October, have attracted a substantial number of friend-of-the-court briefs. More than 200 companies signed one amicus brief that said ending discrimination against LGBT workers is “good for business, employees and the U.S. economy.”
