Employment Law

Title VII

Since Title VII does not protect employees from discrimination based on sexual orientation does that mean these employees have no protection?

Some employees have protection from employment discrimination based on sexual orientation under their respective state laws. In some states, the legislature has passed a law that prohibits discrimination against employees because of sexual orientation. In other states, public employees are protected from such discrimination. For example, in 2002 the Alaska governor signed an executive order prohibiting sexual orientation discrimination against state employees.
