Orrick Webinar: Reflections on Bostock: LGBTQ+ Rights in the Workplace and at the Supreme Court

Firm Event | July.15.2020 | 12:00pm - 1:30pm (Pacific Daylight Time)

Webinar - Recording Available

Orrick's LGBTQ+ Attorney Affinity Group, Women's Initiative, and Diversity & Inclusion Committee hosted a virtual Pride conversation on July 15, 2020.

The U.S. Supreme Court recently issued an important ruling in Bostock v. Clayton County affirming that LGBTQ individuals are protected from workplace discrimination under Title VII of the Civil Rights Act of 1964. By a 6-3 majority, the Supreme Court concluded that Title VII's prohibition against discrimination "because of .. sex" covers discrimination on the basis of sexual orientation and gender identity. This webinar will discuss the background of this litigation, the majority and dissenting opinions, and how this landmark decision fits within the Supreme Court's LGBTQ rights jurisprudence more broadly. We will also address Bostock's practical impact and important issues the Court left unresolved.
