Employment Law Update 2019

Product ID: CA2927R6
Presented By: State Bar of Wisconsin PINNACLE

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.
