Managers Guide to Protected Categories and Anti-Discrimination Laws

Learn the latest trends in employee protected categories and workplace anti-discrimination protections.

With the emergence of a new wave civil rights movement have come a pro-employee culture shift in workplaces across the country and expanded EEO protections, which have fed the influx of high profile allegations of harassment, discrimination and other misconduct. Indeed, the EEOC has never been busier. This new landscape requires that all employees and managers acquire skills for navigating the potential landmines in the new American workplace. This topic helps the persons who are most likely to be the first to learn about a potential claim of discrimination to understand the latest developments in federal EEO law and related trends in state laws. Using federal law as the framework, the information will address a variety of subjects, including the latest in federal and state LGBTQ, sexual harassment and race discrimination protections; avoiding claims from older workers and applicants; handling extended and intermittent leaves of absence and requests for accommodation; and guidance for drafting effective policies.
