BOSTON, MA, May 11, 2017 /24-7PressRelease/
-- Family and employment law firm Davis & Davis, P.C. has recently published an insightful blog post discussing the emerging workplace rights of the transgender and LGBT employees. This seasoned team of Boston sexual harassment lawyers has been actively involved in building mass awareness to bring an end to employment discrimination against the LGBT community.
Davis & Davis, P.C. continues their relentless efforts to safeguard the LGBT community from workplace discrimination by building public awareness. Over the last one year, this Boston sexual harassment lawyer has been discussing this burning issue via a series of blog posts. The latest post in the firm's blog speaks about some of the recent developments towards the establishment of workplace rights in the LGBT community.
The most common form of sexual harassment at the workplace is the unwelcoming conduct by any male towards his female counterpart. However, there are many different combinations of gender-based discrimination including lesbian, gay, bisexual, and transgender discrimination.
In their latest blog post, Davis & Davis, P.C. draws the reader's' attention towards Caitlyn Jenner's recent act of identifying herself as a transgender woman. Though this courageous decision grabbed people's attention all over the United States, the article mentions that three out of every five American citizens come from areas that do not have any laws to prohibit employment discrimination on the basis of gender identity and sexual orientation.
However, the noted family and employment law firm takes heart from some recent rulings that were brought to protect the workplace rights of LGBT workers. "The Equal Employment Opportunity Commission (EEOC) handed down a historic ruling on employment discrimination on July 16, 2015. The ruling affirmed that under the provisions of Title VII of the Civil Rights Act of 1964, employment discrimination based on sexual orientation is prohibited," the article states.
It has also been informed that the Massachusetts Legislature prohibits all types of distinction between straight and LGBT individuals and the state recognizes workplace protection for the transgender individuals. At the end of the blog post, Davis & Davis, P.C. urges the workplace discrimination victims in Boston to contact Attorney John Davis at 978-276-0777.
