State law protects employees in both the private and public sector from discrimination on the basis of sexual orientation.
State law protects employees in both the private and public sector from discrimination on the basis of sexual orientation, as well as gender identity and/or gender expression.
State law/executive order protects public employees but NOT private sector employees on the basis of sexual orientation.
All government employees are protected by the U.S. Constitution against irrational discrimination based on sexual orientation or gender identity. In addition, some measure of protection already exists under Title VII based on gender, which has been held to include gender identity and expression. The U.s. Equal Employment Opportunity Commission (EEOC) and several courts have interpreted Title VII to protect transgender employees, and the EEOC has interpreted Title VII to cover sexual orientation discrimination. The Supreme Court has held that the EEOC's interpretation of Title VII are entitled to "great deference."
