translated from Spanish: U.S. Supreme Court ruling on LGBT workers’ defense

In Pride Month, the U.S. Supreme Court ruled in favor of LGBT workers, rejecting the Government’s arguments and expressing that the rights of this community are covered by the Civil Rights Act 1964.So it decided after six positive votes against three, thereby protecting LGBT communities from any type of labor discrimination. The focus of the discussion was whether they were covered by Article VII of the Civil Rights Act of the 1960s that prohibits sex discrimination.» An employer that fires an individual for being homosexual or trans fires that person for traits or actions that would not have questioned members of another sex. Sex plays a necessary and impossible role in that decision, exactly as article VII forbids,» Judge Neil Gorsuch, the first magistrate That Trump nominated the Supreme Court, argued in the ruling.
The other Conservative judges – Samuel Alito, Clarence Thomas and Brett Kavanaugh – voted against it, CNN reported. The Supreme Court’s decision will have a direct impact on more than 8 million LGBT workers. The likely Democratic opposition presidential candidate Joe Biden celebrated the decision – «To this day, in more than half of the states, LGBTQ+ people could get married one day and be fired from their job the next day» – while the White House chose silence. The issue was debated years ago in the lower courts and the one-off case that brought the Supreme Court does not involve President Donald Trump, but just three days ago and in the absence of a judicial consensus, his administration presented a backtracking initiative in the protection that guaranteed patients trans the health system passed in 2010 and known as Obamacare.
