How Will The Trends in Discrimination & Harassment Lawsuits Affect You?

How Will The Trends in Discrimination & Harassment Lawsuits Affect You?

Kick of 2015 with a revealing discussion on trends in discrimination and harassment lawsuits!

Each year courts decide dozens of cases interpreting California and federal anti-discrimination and anti-harassment laws, many of which greatly impact how those laws are applied in the real world. While most employers stay up to date on changes to the laws themselves, it is what happens in the courts that can create unknown problems for employers – from issues that impact day-to-day operations, such as accommodations and claims under the California Workplace Religious Freedom Act, to technical legal issues, such as who is an “employer” and whether a “mixed motive” for firing an employee will allow an employer to escape liability in a discrimination case. Please join SEAC for an informative discussion regarding the trends in discrimination and harassment lawsuits, including where the courts are, and where they might be going, on the issues that impact every employer in California.
