Please join the Labor & Employment Section on Thursday, November 7, 2019, for a presentation on Recent Developments in LGBTQ Employment Discrimination Law with David Nahmias, Esq. from Impact Fund.
Laws prohibiting sexual orientation and gender identity discrimination have shifted rapidly in recent years. This training will describe the current state of federal and California law protecting LGBTQ workers and workers with HIV/AIDS. Participants will learn how to recognize and eliminate explicit and implicit biases that harm LGBTQ people in the workplace, including inappropriate name and pronoun usage, unlawful invasions of privacy, and lack of access to gender-consistent facilities. The training will also identify practical considerations for lawyers when advising LGBTQ, especially transgender clients, and provide tips for ensuring an inclusive and affirming attorney-client relationship.
Our speaker, David Nahmias, is a Law Fellow at the Impact Fund, a Berkeley-based non-profit legal organization that supports social justice through strategic litigation and advocacy, training, and grant-making. He leads Impact LGBTQ, the Impact Fund’s initiative to expand the community of advocates for low-income LGBTQ workers
