Meghan Droste

Course Description


There’s a lot of discussion these days about whether or not employees can legally be fired for being LGBTQ+. In fact, the EEOC says sexual orientation and gender identity is protected under Title VII, but the DoJ says just the opposite. It’s quite a conflict between two relatively independent federal agencies, so what does it all mean for the federal workforce?

Join FELTG instructor Meghan Droste, an experienced LGBTQ and Gender Issues Practice Group team lead, for this 90-minute webinar that explains the latest information on the state of sexual orientation and gender identity protections in the federal workplace.

After a brief discussion on applicable law and the theories of discrimination, Ms Droste will cover:

  • Important definitions in 2018
  • The latest on sexual orientation protection under Title VII, and the current federal circuit split
  • Transgender status and legal protections
  • Gender stereotyping claims and same-sex harassment
  • Best practices for agencies to follow

The law has been evolving for quite some time, and with a circuit split it’s crucial to understand where things are – today. Register now!
