Sometimes Congress uses a word in legislation whose meaning is disputed for years.   Such is the case with the word, "sex", in Title VII of the Civil Rights Act of 1964.  Although it was originally defined as the difference between men and women, it has since been interpreted by courts to include treating people differently based on their sexual orientation.  In fact, the EEOC has vigourously applied this interpretation in recent years taking this position in all cases.  The Seventh Circuit in a recent case agreed with the EEOC and held that an employer that denied employment to a potential candidate based on her sexual orientation, discriminated against her based on sex under Title VII.  However, the Trump administration takes a different view on the definition of "sex" in Title VII.  The controversy may soon be ended if the United States Supreme Court in the coming days agrees to hear a case involving this very issue.  

This live webinar will provide a primer for employers on this issue and give a better understanding of an employer's obligations to prohibit discrimination based on sexual orientation when the state law does not contain such a prohibition.  The webinar will explore the history of this issue and provide an in-depth discussion of the case the Supreme Court may agree to hear as well as the most recent case in which the Seventh Circuit held that discrimination based on sexual orientation does constitute sex discrimination under Title VII.  

Some of the many issues discussed during this live HR Webinar include:

  • History of Title VII and definition of "sex" as interpreted by courts in the past
  • Other legislation that is pending to include "sexual orientation" as a protected class under Title VII
  • EEOC's recent agressive stance that "sex" includes "sexual orientation"
  • Analysis of the recent case in which the Seventh Circuit held that refusing to hire an applicant based upon her sexual orientation constituted "sex discrimination" under Title VII
  • Review of the case that might soon be under discussion in the U.S. Supreme Court on this issue
  • Best practices for employers in protecting their organizations from claims of sex discrimination based on sexual orientation 
  • Tips for what to include in your policies and procedures to best protect your organization
  • And much more!
