Human rights group pushes for workplace protection

Posted: Updated:

A national human rights group is holding a news conference in Charlotte to promote the push to protect gays in the workplace.

The Human Rights Campaign says employees can still be fired for sexual orientation or gender identity.

Tuesday's news conference comes one day before a U.S. Senate committee takes up the Employment Nondiscrimination Act, which would ensure that no one could be fired simply because they're gay, lesbian, bisexual or transgender.

North Carolina's two senators are on that committee.

Group president Chad Griffin also is planning to discuss landmark decisions on marriage equality handed down last month by the U.S. Supreme Court.
