New LGBT/Sexual Orientation Protections Under Title VII: HR’s Roadmap For Ensuring Compliant Policies And Practices
|Date / Time:
||5/3/2017 / 1:30 p.m. - 2:15 p.m. Eastern
In a landmark ruling, the Seventh U.S. Circuit Court of Appeals has concluded sexual orientation is a protected category under Title VII of the Civil Rights Act of 1964 (Title VII). This opens the door for federal courts in other circuits to issue similar findings; thus, expanded coverage of Title VII to members of the LGBT community across the nation is a real possibility.
How should HR respond to the court’s ruling? What impact will Seventh Circuit’s decision in Hively v. Ivy Tech Community College have on employment policy development and practices?
Join us on May 3 to find out. Our presenters, both skilled labor and employment attorneys, will explain the practical impact the expanded scope of Title VII could have on your compliance obligations.
