From 1964 to 2020 - How Sexual Orientation Became a Protected Status

About this Event

This 1.5 hour Zoom webinar will discuss the recent U.S. Supreme Court’s Bostock v. Clayton County ruling that concluded sexual orientation and transgender identity discrimination is illegal under Title VII of the Civil Rights of 1964. The Court supported its conclusion by discussing the history of sex discrimination in employment law and analyzing past Supreme Court decisions dealing with sex discrimination in employment. That history and past Court decisions will be discussed in this webinar.

What employers need to do to comply with the Court’s decision will also be part of the webinar. Q&A will be permitted during the presentation. Some questions may be reserved for the end of the presentation.
