Todd Solomon will be speaking during the session titled: "LGBTI Discrimination in the Workplace: the State of the Law and Best Practices for Multinational Companies" at the IBA Annual Conference 2016.
Presented by the Lesbian, Gay, Bisexual, Transgender and Intersex Law Committee and the Discrimination and Equality Committee.
As the freedom to marry expands throughout the world, it becomes more clearly problematic that there is a lack of protection for LGBTI persons in the workplace. In many jurisdictions, a same-sex marriage can take place at the weekend, only to be followed by a dismissal in response on Monday morning for being gay. This session will summarise the current state of the law regarding LGBTI workplace discrimination and will discuss best practices for recruiting and retaining LGBTI employees, including a dialogue around cutting-edge issues, such as gender transition guidelines, paternity leave and the future of benefits.
