Outline

On June 25, in observance of LGBTQIA+ Pride Month, and the anniversary of the U.S. Supreme Court ruling in Bostock v. Clayton County, the Equal Employment Opportunity Commission (EEOC) has published new information to educate employees, applicants, and employers about federal protections for all workers from discrimination based on sexual orientation and gender equity.


The release includes a new webpage on the EEOC website that consolidates resources addressing federal protections against discrimination based on sexual orientation and gender identity. Rather than announcing new policies, the new page summarizes established EEOC positions and provides information about harassment, retaliation, and how to file a discrimination charge. Also provided are links to EEOC statistics and fact sheets tracking recent EEOC litigation.


In addition, a new technical assistance document explains the Bostock ruling and reiterates the EEOC’s position on the protection of employees under the basic concepts of Title VII of the Civil Rights Act of 1964, as well as the commission’s ongoing role in enforcing those rights.


The new EEOC materials do not announce any new policy, nor do they constitute binding law on employers. Instead, the EEOC has explained that the documents are intended to provide clarity to the public regarding existing requirements under the law.


However, it will be prudent for Employers to follow the technical assistance since there are more transgender employees who are expecting them to follow the guidance. There is more litigation for employees who have established that they will no longer be discriminated against.

 


Why is This Webinar For You?

As a compliance officer, I see many landmines for Employers in this update, if they do not adjust their policies, procedures, and employee handbooks as well as stand-alone policies.


Employers need to update policies, train supervisors and managers, and consider whether to add a policy for transgender employees who are or will be transitioning, and consider whether unisex bathrooms and locker rooms make more sense for your company. Whatever you do, remember to be sensitive to employees and reach out to employment attorneys with the questions that we all know will come up.


Moreover, Employers in multi-state locations need to be aware of how states are handling transgender issues. There are more state regulations that make transgender equity a top priority.


Join Clatid to learn how the states where their employees are located (including remote employees) need to mitigate these federal, state, and local regulations.
