Employers Advised to Review Policies in Light of EEOC Sex Discrimination Lawsuits

Overview


Todd Solomon, Brian Tiemann and Jeffrey Arnold wrote this bylined article on the first EEOC lawsuits charging employers with sexual orientation discrimination. Given the risk of more such litigation, the authors wrote, “Employers should consider updating their nondiscrimination policies to prohibit discrimination on the basis of sexual orientation and gender identity. In addition, employers should consider engaging legal counsel to perform sexual orientation harassment training for employees and managers.”
