How to Prevent LGBT Discrimination Lawsuits

Do you know if the federal Civil Rights Act’s Title VII protects lesbian, gay, bisexual, and transgender (LGBT) employees from discrimination? If your answer is no, you’re not alone. In fact, even the Equal Employment Opportunity Commission (EEOC) and various courts have disagreed on whether Title VII covers LGBT individuals. But beware: The EEOC recently filed two sexual orientation-based lawsuits, and some surveys have found that an astounding 90 percent of transgender and 40 percent of LGB employees experience workplace discrimination.

Learn how to protect your workplace from becoming one of these statistics in this information-packed audio presentation by human resources (HR) expert Dr. Susan Strauss, BA, RN. Find out what Title VII actually says regarding LGBT protections and how these types of discrimination lawsuits are playing out in courts. Prepare your workplace for the EEOC’s increasing focus on safeguarding LGBT employees from discrimination, and discover opportunities for your organization to create strategies to ensure LGBT inclusion in your workforce.

After attending this audio event, you will be able to welcome and include LGBT workers, so that your organization is more productive, has better morale, is healthier, and has far less liability exposure. Learn how to create a stable workplace climate and culture, which will lead to reduced turnover and easier hiring of LGBT employees.
