The SCCBA Labor & Employment Section presents a Brown Bag: What’s Sex Got to do With it?

By Hoge Fenton | 07.21.2020 | Employment Law

The U.S. Supreme Court has upset 56 years of various legal definitions for the word “sex” in this June’s decision in Bostock v. Clayton County. In addition, the Court has laid down new rules for what is “but for” discrimination, when is an action “because of” sex, why original congressional intent is irrelevant, how employees may not be questioned about what they believe is “sex” discrimination, how managers’ statements of their own “intent” or “motivation” are irrelevant, why treating every other female other than the plaintiff female provides absolutely no defense, and how the “Equal Opportunity Harasser doctrine” is now DOA. What did the court say about religious disinclinations to hire with the LGBTQ community or the issue of same-sex bathrooms? All these issues, and others, will be addressed in the Brown Bag offered by Richard Schramm and Jenn Protas.
