  • The latest case law surrounding an employer’s denial of spousal benefits to an employee’s same-sex spouse
  • Where are the courts drawing the line between discrimination on the basis of gender stereotyping and discrimination on the basis of sexual orientation/sexual identity?
  • The latest EEOC activity surrounding this issue – what is Trump’s Administration doing with this?
  • Understanding the protections afforded to LGBT employees in your particular state, and navigating such discrimination claims amidst inconsistent and uncertain legal guidelines

    o What policies should be established?

    o What complaint reporting procedures should be in place?
