EVENT OVERVIEW

Navigating a New Frontier: LGBTQ issues in the workplace

LGBTQ issues are increasingly at the forefront of nationwide civil rights discussions. As federal, state and local laws develop, and sometimes differ around the scope of LGBTQ protections at work, employers need to understand the legal issues and ensure workplace compliance. We will discuss the status of employee rights and employer obligations in this emerging area, as well as trends, best practices, and employer strategies. This Business Hour features attorneys from our Labor and Employment practice group, who will address the myriad issues that every employer should understand.
