Program Schedule

Title VII Employment Discrimination 101
Mr. Golden
Come to understand the following core Title VII subjects: • protected employee and covered employee thresholds • conduct prohibited by Title VII • common employer defenses • potential remedies and damages • recent developments.

Developments in LGBT Employment Rights: Pending Landmark US Supreme Court Cases & More 
Mr. Anderson, Ms. Klitsch, Mr. Gonzalez-Pagan, Mr. Ude (moderator)
In October 2019, the U.S. Supreme Court heard arguments in three appeals in which the Court is asked to address the rights of LGBT workers under federal antidiscrimination law. While these decisions are almost certain to be landmarks, they are only part of the landscape. Pennsylvania courts consider interpretations of federal antidiscrimination statutes when interpreting Pennsylvania’s Human Relations Act and local antidiscrimination laws – but federal interpretations are not binding. We will address those laws through textual analysis, theory and practicality. This session is intended to help ensure that employers and employees and the attorneys advising them understand their respective rights, responsibilities and choices.

The Issues of Ageism in the Workplace 
Mr. Ewan, Mr. Macey
The issue of ageism in the workplace—the telltale signs that age has been considered in workplace decisions, how to use that to the benefit of the employee, and how to counsel employers around such issues.

Workplace Sexual Harassment: Proving It, Defending It
Mr. Pollins
Attend to hear practical solutions on how to resolve workplace harassment disputes. Examine the legal issues regarding workplace harassment, including: • what constitutes illegal harassment • what a good anti-harassment policy looks like • what lawyers representing employers and employees need to know about investigations and responses to complaints • potential defenses and damages under existing law.

Fallout of a #MeToo Complaint: Dealing with the Alleged Abuser
Ms. Conley
How does an employer adequately investigate an allegation of harassment and deal fairly with the alleged abuser? What are the concerns that an employer should raise? Learn the best practices to prevent a lawsuit from the alleged harasser.

Retaliation Claims: When to Raise Them and What May Make Them Stick
Ms. Michael, Mr. Munshi
The success or failure of a retaliation claim often turns on one thing: timing. During this session, you will hear from a plaintiff-side attorney and a defense-side attorney on critical issues including when an employee engages in protected activity, how an employee may maximize the protected activity’s significance and how employers should or should not respond to an employee’s complaints to best prepare for resolution or litigation.

Recorded in August 2020.
