Sex-Based Discrimination: How To Protect Your Company Against A New Surge Of Gender-Bias Claims
|Date / Time:
||2/23/2017 / 1:30 - 3:00 p.m EST
Title VII of the Civil Rights Act of 1964 doesn’t expressly prohibit discrimination on the basis of sexual orientation or gender nonconformity, but that’s not stopping the Equal Employment Opportunity Commission (EEOC) from advocating on behalf of employees alleging they were discriminated against on the basis of lesbian, gay, bisexual, and transgender (LGBT) status or gender identity.
In 2016, the EEOC filed the first lawsuits urging the courts to rule that Title VII violations exist when employers engage in discriminatory practices on account of employees’ sexual orientation.
The EEOC also reports that it’s obtained nearly $6.4 million on behalf of employees who were allegedly subjected to sex-based discrimination in violation of Title VII. And, courts are becoming increasingly receptive to treating discrimination against gender-nonconforming workers as discrimination on the basis of sex.
Join us with Michael Greene Esq., member of the Affirmative Action and Federal Contract Compliance practice group, to learn the key issues that HR professionals should address to avoid sex bias claims in the workplace.
About Your Presenter:
- How Title VII’s sex discrimination coverage is being interpreted in increasingly broad ways—including the legal rationales, justifications, and limits of the protection
- The practical impact of current case law dealing with gender nonconformity and sexual orientation in the workplace
- When gender nonconformists are entitled to legal protection, and to what extent
- Recommendations for policies and practices that may need to change to avoid legal risks
- And much more!

|About Webcasts / Audio Conferences / Podcasts:|
Webcasts, audio conferences, and podcasts are presentations that you
attend via the Internet, phone, or mobile device at a specified date and time for "live" versions, or at your convenience for "recorded" and "On-Demand" versions.
versions are interactive, meaning that participants can ask questions in real time, plus are a very cost-effective form of training because 1) you receive fast, convenient learning without
any out-of-office time; 2) you can invite as many colleagues as you'd like to listen in on a single phone line; 3) you incur no travel expenses; and 4) you and your colleagues are back
at work immediately after the session ends!
And though with recorded versions you do lose the ability to ask questions, you gain the ability to hear the presentation numerous
times and to share it with others in your office.
Handout materials and the phone number for live presentations are made available to you prior to the event via email from the
presenter and from the "MyAccount" link on the menu bar. Copies of the presentations are included with recorded versions.
