Labor and employment law lookout
Whether you represent management or employees, the Employment Law Update 2019 is your guide to all of the changes and upcoming trends you need to know about. It’s your one-stop shop for an overview of key federal and state employment law cases from the past year, including special focus on the trio of LGBTQ cases currently pending before the U.S. Supreme Court. Currently, there is no federal law that explicitly prohibits firing workers for being gay or transgender. The outcome of these three rulings could potentially expand the definition of Title VII by including gender identity and sexual orientation as protected classes.
Mobilized by #MeToo
The #MeToo movement has spurred an ongoing national dialogue about the prevalence of sexual harassment in society. Representatives from the U.S. Equal Employment Opportunity Commission (EEOC) will be on hand to discuss how increased public awareness about sexual harassment and discrimination in the workplace has raised employee expectations of harassment prevention and punishment by employers. Learn whether your client’s policies, procedures, and training programs need to be revisited in order to create a more proactive and effective anti-harassment system.
