In the 22+ states whose laws prohibit workplace harassment because of sexual orientation and gender identity, courts and practitioners must sort out how to apply ‘traditional’ harassment law to more novel, nuanced issues specific to the LGBTQ+ community. These issues included perceived LGBTQ+ status, outing, misgendering, stereotyping, and denial of gender-inclusive facilities access. The panel’s experience will be valuable to lawyers, whether in federal court (should Title VII continue to protect LGBTQ+ workers) or in those states with protective laws.
Speakers: Connie Montoya (Hinshaw & Culbertson LLP); David Nahmias (Impact Fund); Jenn Protas (Hoge Fenton Jones & Appel); Ilona Turner (Law Offices of Amy Oppenheimer); Shinming Wong (National Center for Lesbian Rights)
