December 10: “Because of Sex”: Federal Protections for LGBT People

Since the 1970’s and particularly after the Supreme Court’s decision in Price Waterhouse v.

We will also identify emerging issues and detail best practices that employers, schools, and health insurance providers should adopt to protect LGBT people and their families.
