One area that is less sure than ever is an employer’s obligations with regard to LGBTQ discrimination. There are so many issues that an employer has to be aware of including the “bathroom” issue! Do you have to allow a student to use the bathroom of their current gender identity or is it alright to require them to use the bathroom of the gender assigned at birth? Also, what does the law require? Although federal law and Title VII do not specifically prohibit discrimination or harassment based upon sexual orientation or gender identity, many state laws do include these. In addition, a federal court has recently held that sexual orientation discrimination is protected under Title VII.

Please join Melissa Fleischer as she helps make sure you are kept up-to-date on this and new cases dealing with this important issue so that you best understand your legal requirements to avoid discrimination and prevent harassment to your LGBTQ students and staff/teachers.


Just a sampling of what this webinar will cover:

  • Understanding whether sexual orientation and gender identity discrimination is prohibited under federal or state and local laws
  • Understanding your legal requirements to protect your LGBTQ employees and students
  • Legal pitfalls with LGBTQ students and employees to be aware of
  • Bathrooms? Which one?
  • Update on legal cases to be aware of such as the Masterpiece Cakeshop Supreme Court ruling
  • Laws on the horizon that are not favorable to LGBTQ employees
