previous ruling by the Eleventh Circuit, citing that Title VII did not protect employees from employment discrimination due to their sexual orientation. In a petition filed with the Supreme Court, this became a landmark case, considering that the judge ruled discrimination of employees because of their sexual orientation contravenes Title VII.
Based on the terms provided by the U.S. Equal Employment Opportunity Commission (n.d.) requires, employers should promote equal treatment in the working environment. The commission prohibits discriminatory practices against employees due to their age, sex, religion, ethnicity, and sexual orientation, as reinforced in Title VII. Therefore, it is worth stating that applying the Title VII law in the resolution and ruling by the Supreme Court was justified.
