    ISBA Publishes Azar Alexander and Joy Anderson Case Synopsis of Bostock v. Clayton County, Georgia

    RSHC’s Azar Alexander and Joy Anderson were featured in the July 2020 edition of the ISBA’s Bench & Bar newsletter. Alexander and Anderson authored a synopsis of Bostock v. Clayton County, Georgia, the historic case which marked a significant victory in the battle for equal rights for the LGBTQ+ community. In Bostock, the United State Supreme Court directly addressed whether an employer could terminate an employee because of their sexual orientation and/or gender identity, holding that “an employer who intentionally treats a person worse because of sex—such as by firing the person for actions or attributes it would tolerate in an individual of another sex—discriminates against that person in violation of Title VII.”
