Texas judge eliminates workplace protections for trans and non-binary employees

A Texas judge ruled that the Biden Administration’s workplace protections for LGBTQ+ people – specifically trans and non-binary employees – were “unlawful.” Back in March 2021, President Joe Biden issued an executive order that called for the protection of LGBTQ+ individuals within the workplace and education environments.

The inclusive move was initiated to fall in line with the Supreme Court’s 2020 ruling in the Bostock v. Clayton County case – which prohibited employers from discriminating based on sexual orientation and gender identity under the established Title VII of the Civil Rights Act of 1964.

Biden’s executive order also noted that denying LGBTQ+ employees the right to use pronouns, bathrooms and dress codes that align with their gender identity was considered discrimination within the workplace.

While the new directives were a welcomed change amongst LGBTQ+ activists and allies, the order also triggered an array of conservative lawmakers to retaliate.
