Gender Identity & Expression Discrimination Protections

September 17, 2019 @ 12:00 pm - 1:30 pm

From the ability to attract and retain the very best talent to the new market opportunities afforded to inclusive businesses, leading US companies committed to inclusion are working to build workplaces welcoming of transgender and gender non-conforming employees.

Further, laws around gender identity and expression are evolving on the local, state, and federal level, and, today, employers face a patchwork of legal obligations to navigate across their business units. Without policies and practices as well as appropriate training and education, employers face the possibility of expensive legal claims and actions.

 

Topics include:

1. What Is…?

a) Gender Identity or Expression
b) Transgender
c) Gender Dysphoria

2. Employment Discrimination and Harassment Protections

a) Gender Identity or Expression
b) Sex
c) Disability
d) Reasonable Accommodation Obligations

3. Practical Considerations

a) Dress Code
b) Employee Name
c) Restrooms

 

Presented by: Michael Sciotti and Ross Greenky, Barclay Damon LLP
