Three months ago, I posted about North Carolina’s HB2 (the transgender bathroom bill that is still garnering headlines) and that many had overlooked a big change to North Carolina’s discrimination law separate and apart from bathrooms.  As I pointed out in my prior post, lost in the protests over the bathroom issues was the fact that all North Carolina citizens had lost the private right of action to file a state level discrimination claim for race, religion, color, age, biological sex or disability.

Now, North Carolina legislators have taken steps to reverse that part of HB2 and restore the private right of action for citizens to sue for discrimination related to race, religion, color, age, biological sex or disability.
