Supreme Court to Decide Major LGBTQ Civil Rights Cases
Presented by
Kim Vance, Shareholder, Baker Donelson

Jimmy Buffett singing “changes in latitudes, changes in attitudes” may be just the thing to kick off this dynamic discussion of the three LGBTQ workplace discrimination cases pending before the Supreme Court. HR professionals are looking for answers to the following LGBTQ related questions:

  • Will the Court determine existing federal laws prohibiting sex discrimination also prohibit
    discrimination based on sexual orientation, transgender and/or gender identity?
  • What is “gender identity” and how will it impact your workplace if it becomes a
    protected class?
  • Could Congress pass the Equality Act regardless of how the Supreme Court rules?
  • Join Kim Vance, attorney with Baker Donelson, for an engaging presentation exploring these
    and other cutting edge LGBTQ employment law issues.

Registration: MTSU Faculty or Student: $5; Member Registration: $20 by end of business Wednesday November 13, $25 afterwards.
