Recent years have seen an increased societal and legal focus on the equity rights of LGBTQ+ individuals. This and the impact of online connections and support are leading to an increase in the population of openly LGBTQ+ individuals that are or will soon be in the workforce. Federal law remains highly unsettled as to LGTBQ+ workplace protections, but federal courts around the country are continuing to be asked to decide whether federal sex discrimination laws protect LGBTQ+ individuals from sexual orientation and gender identity discrimination.
Apart from federal law, a minority of states – including Minnesota – already prohibit such discrimination. This session will focus on an overview of changing workplace demographics, the current legal landscape around LGBTQ+ workplace rights, and best practices for employers focused on offering a non-discriminatory and inclusive work environment.
