July 2020 Federal Employment Law Training Group Newsletter

Staying Connected Across the Miles

It’s the middle of summer – and what an interesting year it’s already been. I remember a time during the summer of 2019, when I spent a few moments tallying the number of states FELTG had been to so far that year, and adding up the number of states we had yet to visit. I don’t remember the exact total, but I can tell you we visited more states – physically – last year than we have this year.

That being said, we’ve still found a way to bring our classes to just about every state (and even countries in Asia and Europe) this year, thanks to the wonders of the Internet and our webinars and Virtual Training Institute. We miss seeing your smiling faces in the classroom, but we’ve still found ways to stay connected while travel is suspended and in-person gatherings are limited. We’ve introduced features into our web-based training including live polling, breakout sessions, workshops, and more, so you can stay engaged whether you’re attending a 60-minute session, a week-long training, or something in between. We hope you’ll join us for an upcoming event.

In this month’s newsletter, we cover important topics including the recent Supreme Court decision on workplace sexual orientation and transgender discrimination, determining essential functions of work positions, how the civil service is like calculus, and more.

Take care,

Deborah J. Hopkins, FELTG President
