Why Should You Attend:

All employers need to understand the most recent legal and administrative developments that have now extended Title VII protections to these employees by creating a new protected class. In addition, employers must know the current status of these workers under relevant state and local laws. It is also critical to understand that all LGBT employees should not be deemed to have the same set of workplace needs. Those needs differ enormously, as do the protections and other workplace issues affecting them. In this webinar, the instructor will guide attendees through the thicket of laws and regulations that affect your relationship as employers with LGBTQIA workers.

Areas Covered in the Webinar:

  • What does it mean to be LGBTQIA?
  • What laws impact LGBTQIA employees?
  • Case law related to LGBTQIA employees
  • Federal, state and local law
  • The discriminatory practices and effects of such discrimination
  • Creating a workplace toolbox for developing LGBTQIA basic compliance
  • Tools for developing best practices in dealing with LGBTQIA employees

Who Will Benefit:

  • HR Directors
  • HR Managers
  • HR Executives
  • Business Directors
  • Any CO involved with employee relations/human resources

Topic Background:

About 9 million Americans, roughly the population of New Jersey, identify themselves as LGBT (lesbian, gay, bisexual and transgender). That number is low as it only reflects those who choose to identify themselves under the labels of L, G, B, T, Q, I or A; the real numbers are far higher. Moreover lots of individuals have dated or been involved with others of the same sex. Despite the power and presence of this substantial group of Americans, issues founded in religion, biology and politics continue to generate debate over the inclusion of LGBT individuals both at home, by way of marriage and childbearing, and in the workplace. After decades of ad hoc action and Band-Aid type legislation by federal and state governments, solid positions have developed regarding the rights of LGBT workers to be free of discrimination and retaliation. The EEOC has finally acted, and it now recognizes LGBTQIA rights under Title VII non-discrimination rules. LGBT issues also may be impacted by the Family and Medical Leave Act and the Americans with Disabilities Act.
