The Supreme Court’s recent decisions in the Zarda, Bostock, and R.G. & G.R. Harris Funeral Homes cases represent a watershed in Title VII law and beyond.

A discussion of these recent decisions will benefit attendees by:

  • Illuminating Supreme Court thinking on statutory construction
  • Helping employment lawyers understand the scope and limits of Title VII, particularly with respect to LGBTQIA issues
  • Anticipating the impact these decisions may have on other areas of the law
  • Providing practical insights for how to advise employers and employees in light of the decisions

Through examination of these groundbreaking cases, our speakers will lead a discussion you won’t want to miss.
