Recent developments have reinvigorated the contentious legal debate as to whether Title VII of the Civil Rights Act protects workers from sexual orientation discrimination and have breathed new life into the push for the Supreme Court to finally resolve this issue.  Transgender employees often face a variety of obstacles in the workplace.  Employers and unions are adopting new policies, procedures and protocols to address legal, cultural and societal changes.  

On Wednesday evening, October 4th, join EEOC Commissioner Chai Feldblum and our panel of attorneys to discuss what your clients need to know.
