10:00 AM - 11:00 AM Pacific Standard Time

Join us for a one-hour webinar about protecting employees’ gender identity and transgender rights, a prominent focus of recent US state and local legislation and federal court decisions across the country.

Employers should consider updating their current policies and practices to comply with these new laws, particularly those related to bathrooms, dress and grooming codes, employee benefit plans, and accommodations for transition-related medical conditions or treatment. Presenters will discuss recent legal guidance from New York City and other jurisdictions on transgender rights and the practical challenges employers face when working to prevent discrimination.

Topics will include:

  • Employer best practices
  • Examples of violations
  • Definitions of useful vocabulary
  • Potential Title VII expansion
