LGBT and Sexual Orientation Compliance Procedures Under Title VII

OnDemand Webinar (91 minutes)

Are you in compliance with the latest ruling on sexual orientation under Title VII?Many employers have heard of the landmark ruling last summer by the U.S. Court of Appeals for the Seventh Circuit that held that Title VII prohibits discrimination based on sexual orientation. Since then some other courts have been asked to weigh in, and the decades-old understanding that sexual orientation was not protected by federal anti-discrimination law appears to be in flux. This information will provide human resources managers and other employer representatives with information on sexual orientation compliance procedures under Title VII. Topics will include an explanation of the Seventh Circuit's decision in Hively v. Ivy Tech, HR's responsibilities under the latest ruling, and procedures and policies to have in place to minimize your risk of legal liability. You should gain practical applications that you can apply to your daily business.
