WASHINGTON – The Supreme Court agreed Monday to decide the next major legal dispute over gay rights: whether the nation’s job discrimination laws apply to sexual orientation and gender identity.

The justices will hear three challenges from:

  • A New York skydiving instructor, Donald Zarda, who alleged he was fired because he was gay. He later died, but his sister and life partner are continuing to press the case.
  • A Georgia county government worker, Gerald Bostock, who alleged he was fired from his job as a child welfare services coordinator because he was gay.
  • A Michigan transgender woman, Aimee Stephens, fired from the funeral home where she had worked for six years as Anthony Stephens.

The article goes on to state the following:

The cases raise the issue of job discrimination against gay, lesbian and transgender workers. A decision in the challengers’ favor would mark an important step in the effort to protect the LGBT community from discrimination in employment, housing and public accommodations, advocates say.
