Gender Identity and Sexual Orientation Discrimination in the Workplace: A Practical Guide gets published

by Shaun Knittel - SGN Associate Editor

The National Lesbian, Gay, Bisexual and Transgender (LGBT) Bar Association announced Thursday that a groundbreaking new book by Christine Duffy, a senior staff attorney with the Pro Bono Partnership, will be published in the next two weeks by Bloomberg BNA.

'Employment law is the next frontier for the LGBT equality movement,' said D'Arcy Kemnitz, executive director of the LGBT Bar. 'It should be illegal to fire LGBT individuals based on their sexual orientation or gender identity. This comprehensive book will be an invaluable resource for practitioners across the country as we continue to fight for full equality for our community. We would like to congratulate Christine and Bloomberg BNA on a job well done.'

Gender Identity and Sexual Orientation Discrimination in the Workplace: A Practical Guide is the first book to comprehensively address workplace law and human resource practice relating to gender identity, sexual orientation and gender expression. The treatise provides a detailed survey of state and federal employment laws for LGBT employees and discusses a variety of best practices for human resources professionals and analyzes milestone cases that will impact employment law for years to come.

The LGBT Bar has been advocating for LGBT individuals and bringing together the brightest minds in the legal community since its inception. Given LGBT Bar members' vast knowledge, the organization was proud to assist Christine in compiling practitioners who contributed their expertise to the book.

With over 30 affiliate organizations and members across the country, the LGBT Bar was able to pull together employment law attorneys from traditionally underrepresented states to ensure that a variety of perspectives were shared.

As LGBT employment law continues to evolve, it is vital that attorneys and human resource professionals understand the complexities inherent in issues such as defense litigation tactics, solutions to implementing new policies and the intersection of gender and sexual orientation with culture and the workplace.

Gender Identity and Sexual Orientation Discrimination in the Workplace: A Practical Guide is available for preorder online. All proceeds will be donated to Gay & Lesbian Advocates & Defenders.
