Presentation: Discrimination Update - Gender Identity and the "New Norm"

It's a rapidly changing landscape with more open acceptance of transgender employees. Many businesses today have already had to deal with new workplace issues involving a transgender worker - or likely will in the near future. An explosion of media coverage and entertainment options spotlighting gender identity have emboldened workers to become more open about their expression and lifestyle. 


Gary will cover the legal background on workplace rights based on gender identity, and more recently, sexual orientation. It's been a quick evolution. EEOC, DOL/OFCCP, OSHA and Departments of Justice and Education have led the charge to protect America's workers based on transgender status in only a few short years. How should HR handle a transgender worker's request for accommodation to change his/her name, gender identity or dress/grooming, and how does that fit with your company's culture? And, of course, what about the sensitive issue of bathrooms, locker rooms, and other gender-specific facilities?


Gary will also cover the most recent discrimination law developments and trends, the new EEO-1 compensation report, and more.
