Emerging LGBTQ Civil Rights and Employment IssuesWednesday February 1st, 2017 - 3:30 PM
(1.5 CLEs) While the June 2015 Obergefell v. Hodges decision affirmed the right of same sex couples to marry, scores of other laws and policies impacting LGBTQ individuals and their families remain squarely at issue in litigation and advocacy happening across state and federal courts, administrative agencies, school districts and the private sector. With the backdrop of a new administration in Washington, D.C., this panel will discuss recent judicial and agency decisions and the future legal landscape affecting LGBTQ individuals and families, especially in the areas of employment, religious exemptions, transgender rights, health care and housing law. Among the questions this panel will address: Which Obama administration executive actions will be most in jeopardy? What should legal counsel for employers anticipate as the critical issues in the coming years? What is the intersectionality with other issues such as privacy and immigration? How will state lawmakers address LGBTQ policies in the aftermath of North Carolina’s continuing clash over gender identity protections and the right of municipalities to enact nondiscrimination ordinances? What are the potential implications of the SCOTUS review of Gavin Grimm v. Gloucester County School Board?
