Apple recently removed a “gay cure” application that has been criticized by many. The application was created by Exodus International which targeted “homosexual strugglers” and allows users to learn more about Exodus. The creators maintain that people have a choice to be gay. However, the app was removed at the Apple Store because Apple believes it violates developer guidelines as being offensive to large groups of people.

Currently, discrimination and harassment based on sexual orientation is not itself is not yet protected by Title VII of the Civil Rights Act of 1964, but this law does makes it illegal to discriminate against someone on the basis of race, color, religion, national origin, or sex. Additionally, the U.S. Equal Employment Opportunity Commission (EEOC) does not enforce the protections that prohibit discrimination and harassment based on sexual orientation. Please visit the EEOC’s website for more information: www.eeoc.gov/policy/vii.html.

Leeds Brown Law Obtains Record Verdict in Sexual Harassment Case
Employers that don't try to prevent sexual harassment in the workplace take heed. A jury in Queens, N.Y., this week awarded $15 million to a nurse who endured several years of unwanted sex talk, propositions and groping by a doctor that escalated to two sexual assaults against her in 2001. The verdict represents the largest sexual harassment judgment ever awarded to an individual in a New York state court.
