As evidenced by recent headlines, the subject of LGBT rights arises in a variety of contexts and provokes strong reactions. This discussion is also happening in the workplace, causing employers to be more cognizant of their evolving obligations under recent statutory laws, constitutional mandates, and court decisions.

A 2012 Gallup poll* found that 3.4% of Americans identify as LGBT. As employees disclose their sexual orientation in the workplace, adopting non-discrimination policies, legally-compliant benefit plans and other inclusive practices that recognize LGBT workers is becoming essential for businesses to compete for talent and customers.

Join Dinsmore attorneys for a discussion on what you can do to be proactive, promote a workplace free of discrimination and harassment, and possibly avoid litigation.

In our complimentary 90-minute presentation, you’ll learn more about:
