In this fast-paced 90 minute Webinar, John Fox and his law partner Jay Wang will briefly discuss the several legal conclusions of importance before turning to a more detailed and practical discussion of what employers covered by Title VII and those separately covered federal Government contractors must do to open their workforces to gay, lesbian and transgender employees.
This Webinar is aimed primarily at employers located in one or more of the 28 states which currently DO NOT already protect against Sexual Orientation discrimination in employment. The SCOTUS’ Bostock decision has thrown employers in those states into an IMMEDIATE need to reform many written workplace policies and terms and conditions of employment since many policies and practices currently in effect are unlawful and are currently actionable. NOTE: Virginia’s prohibition on Sexual Orientation discrimination in employment will also take effect on July 1, 2020. In addition, employers in the 29 states which currently DO NOT already protect against Gender Identity discrimination in employment also need to IMMEDIATELY reform many written workplace policies and terms and conditions of employment, including as to the bathroom access issue. And again, Virginia’s recently passed prohibition on Gender Identity also goes into effect on July 1, 2020.
John and Jay will also briefly address the impact on religious employers: Bostock meets Hobby Lobby. They will also leave 15 minutes for Questions and Answers.
