Turner Dispute Resolution

In a trio of cases -- Altitude Express Inc. v. Zarda, Bostock v. Clayton County, and R.G. & G.R. Harris Funeral Homes v. EEOC -- the U.S. Supreme Court is set to decide whether Title VII’s prohibition on sex discrimination bars discrimination based on an employee’s sexual orientation or gender identity. These decisions are expected to be issued near the end of the Supreme Court’s term in June, shortly before our panel meets to discuss them. Join us for an insightful and lively discussion of what the decisions mean, the legal theories behind the cases, the practical effect on employees and employers going forward, and what’s next for protecting LGBTQ rights.
