Intersectional Discrimination & Harassment Claims
Thursday, September 24, 2020, 12:00 PM

Discrimination and harassment claims are often more complex than simply pointing to race or sex as a causal factor.  Sometimes one cannot explain the employer’s conduct as being on the basis of membership in a single protected class; instead it is based on a combination of protected classes.  For years, courts have struggled with how plaintiffs may prove claims of intersectional discrimination or harassment. The Supreme Court’s ruling in Bostock v. Clayton Cty., Georgia, No. 17-1618, 2020 WL 3146686, at *3 (U.S. June 15, 2020) may provide additional support for intersectional discrimination/harrassment claims.  Please join WELA for a vibrant conversation between two nationally recognized employee advocates about this emerging area of discrimination law:
