In his first few hours in the Oval Office, President Joseph R. Biden signed the Executive Order on Preventing and Combating Discrimination on the Basis of Gender Identity or Sexual Orientation.
In 2020, the Supreme Court ruled that an individual’s sexual orientation or transgender status is covered under Title VII’s prohibition against sex discrimination. And Biden’s Executive Order makes it clear that enforcing workplace discrimination protections based on sexual orientation and gender identity is a priority.
During this 90-minute webinar, Attorney at Law Katherine Atkinson will provide all of the information you need to know to comply with the law and manage this priority. She will review and discuss the latest Supreme Court decisions, define the term and explain the concept of “gender stereotyping” as sex discrimination.
Attendees will learn the details of the Biden Executive Order, as well as:
- Transgender status and legal protections
- Actions that have gotten agencies into legal trouble
- Cases involving LGBTQ status and religion
- The best practices for agencies to follow
