Detroit, MI – Clark Hill attorney Anne-Marie Vercruysse Welch will present at the American Conference Institute’s 7th National Forum on Employment Discrimination Litigation on July 28, 2015 at the InterContinental Magnificent Mile in Chicago, IL.
Presenting “The Latest Developments in Sexual Orientation, Gender Identity and Transgender Discrimination Claims: Where Are We Now and What’s on the Horizon?”, Welch will address a host of topics, including:
- implications of OFCCP Final Rule prohibiting sexual orientation and gender identity discrimination by federal contractors;
- the latest EEOC efforts to push the boundaries of Title VII so that its protections extend to cover LGBT employees;
- trends that are currently arising in LGBT discrimination claims and what is on the horizon in terms of regulation, enforcement and litigation; and
- understanding the protections afforded to LGBT employees in your particular state, and navigating the complexities of litigating such claims amidst inconsistent and uncertain legal guidelines.
