Presentation: Discrimination "Legal" Update - Gender Identity, Salary History and #MeToo

Transgender Discrimination: 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 about workplace rights based on gender identity and sexual orientation. In only a few short years EEOC, DOL/OFCCP, OSHA and Departments of Justice and Education have led the charge to protect America's workers based on transgender status.  But is the Trump Administration now pulling back on some of these advances??


Salary History: Gary will also cover other recent discrimination law developments and trends.  Including - are you hiring?  “Ban the Box” was yesterday; today it’s salary history.  What can you ask a candidate about prior pay rates and where?  Does HR need to revise the company’s employment application?  What’s behind this state law trend?


Sexual Harassment: No need to tee up this topic.  It’s obviously time to dust off your policy, sharpen HR”s investigation procedures, and train, train, train.  But what’s different this time around?
