Dear Colleagues,

 
Please see statement below from the Rockland County Bar Association Board of Directors.
 
RCBA Statement Pertaining to LGBTQ Protections Against Employment Discrimination
 
The RCBA is proud to support the recent Supreme Court decision granting LGBTQ people protections against employment discrimination.   On Monday SCOTUS issued a 6-3 landmark decision marking advancements toward equality for LGBTQ people in the workplace.  Justice Gorsuch stated in his decision, "An employer who fires an individual for being homosexual or transgender fires that person for traits or actions it would not have questioned in members of a different sex. Sex plays a necessary and undisguisable role in the decision, exactly what Title VII forbids."  The laws of our Country must protect all people equally.  We cannot pick and choose who we feel is worthy of protection and the RCBA will continue to promote equality and fairness, without exception.  We stand as proud members of the legal community and the RCBA will continue to support our LGBTQ members of the bench and bar as well as those who live and work here in Rockland County. 
 
With best regards,
 
The Bar Association
