Lambda Legal client Jameka Evans

workplace equality

Despite recent advances, people in this country are still being fired, harassed and targeted at work because they are LGBT. Workplace issues are the number one concern among callers to Lambda Legal’s Help Desk.

For years, Lambda Legal has been explaining to courts that Title VII, when properly understood, protects LGBT employees. Three of Lambda Legal’s successful efforts in 2014, in federal courts in Seattle, Chicago, and Washington D.C., were cited by the EEOC in Baldwin v. Foxx. In April 2017, Lambda Legal secured a victory at the full Seventh Circuit Court of Appeals, which ruled that workplace discrimination based on sexual orientation violates federal civil rights law.
