Federal, State & Local Protections For LGBT Workers: The Evolving Legal Landscape, NELA 2018 Annual Convention
Published by National Employment Lawyers Association




Summary
The Second and Seventh Circuits—in contrast to the Eleventh Circuit—have concluded that Title VII prohibits discrimination based on sexual orientation, and the Sixth Circuit recently held that discrimination against transgender employees also violates Title VII (while also reversing the district court’s decision to accept the employer’s “religious freedom” defense). In the face of federal legislative and judicial intransigence over the last few decades, many states and localities have filled the gaps with statutes and ordinances protecting LGBT workers. Our panel will explore these trends at the federal, state and local level. Panelists will review significant court decisions, such as Zarda v. Altitude Express (2d Cir. 2018) (holding that sexual orientation discrimination violates Title VII); Blatt v. Cabela's Retail (E.D. Pa. 2017) (holding, under canon of constitutional avoidance, that the ADA’s exclusion of “transsexualism” does not encompass gender dysphoria); and the anticipated U.S. Supreme Court ruling in Masterpiece Cakeshop. They also will discuss recent and anticipated legislative changes, including the rise of so-called “religious liberty” laws, such as Mississippi’s HB1523.
