Even If Sexual Orientation and Gender Identity Are Not Covered by Title VII Employees May Sue You
What happens if inappropriate behavior happens in a state that doesn’t expressly prohibit sexual orientation discrimination in employment?
There have been some appalling reports about different workplace conduct problems. And sometimes this behavior takes place in a location in which sexual orientation discrimination in employment is not specifically forbidden. Of course, no reasonable employer would support inappropriate behavior, but if there are no laws in place, can an employer in such a location successfully fight that the harassment isn’t illegal? This white paper strives to answer that question.
