Taking On LGBT Issues In The Texas Workplace
Steve Roppolo’s article “Taking On LGBT Issues In The Texas Workplace” was featured in Law 360 on August 27, 2015.
The U.S. Supreme Court made news this summer when it ruled in Obergefell v. Hodges that it was unconstitutional for states to prohibit same-sex marriage. That decision caused many Texas employers to wonder how it would impact the workplace. The landscape in this area continues to evolve, and it’s not happening at a leisurely pace. As much of a game changer as Obergefell is, it’s only one of several developments in the area of lesbian, gay, bisexual and transgender rights, and employers are well-advised to pay attention or risk being caught off guard.
In the article, Steve examines the following topics:
- Same-Sex Marriage and FMLA Obligations
- EEOC Decision on Sexual Orientation Discrimination
- Texas Cities Begin to Prohibit Sexual Orientation by Private Employers
- Transgender Protection
