“On the Basis of Sex”: LGBTQ Employment Rights at a Crossroads

Topics: Access to Justice, LGBT Leadership, LGBTQ Events, On-Demand Webinars

The Thomson Reuters Institute is proud to announce OutLaws 2020, an eight-part thought leadership webinar series devoted to advancing international LGBTQ2+ access to justice. Our opening conversation addresses the precarious state of LGBTQ employment rights in America today.

In an era where job discrimination against LGBTQ employees remains legal across much of the nation, the Supreme Court’s consideration of basic protections for lesbian, gay, bisexual, transgender or two-spirited employees under Title VII of the Civil Rights Act of 1964 is a significant bellwether for what many believe to be a brutal and protracted contest.
