LGBT Employment Rights Update

Webinar: ID# 1041020
Recorded On-Demand
About This Course:
There are few areas of law that change as often and as rapidly as employment law. In recent years, Americans have reexamined their understanding of gender, sexual orientation, and gender identity. This evolution in the ideas about gender continues to develop and is likely to bring about even more change in employment law.

The U.S. Supreme Court and state legislatures have made some fairly recent pronouncements in this area, and there appear to be more changes in the near future regarding the application of employment discrimination law to sexual orientation and gender identity.

This program will discuss how to: identify and anticipate these issues and potential law changes; and proactively prepare your business for compliance with this evolving understanding of sex discrimination. Reviewing and, where needed, modifying such things as hiring and disciplinary practices, employee policies, and workplace communication will be key to remaining compliant with the law as it develops.What You'll Learn:The Status Quo
