Creating an LGBTQ-Friendly Law Firm Environment

Description:

The times are not just changing, they are changing fast. Rarely does a month go by when laws regarding sexual orientation or gender identity are not being created or changed. Along with this legal landscape, and the rise in awareness regarding sexual orientation and gender identity, has come an attendant increase in legal issues presented in the workplace. Join this webinar to learn the basic legal issues that confront decision makers, partners and managers. Explore practical approaches and suggestions to create an environment in your firm designed to reduce discrimination claims based on sexual orientation and gender identity.

Objectives:
  • Analyze how to avoid discrimination claims based on sexual orientation and gender identity
  • Determine your firm’s obligations under FMLA
  • Examine how to create a LGBTQ welcoming environment
