Trans Employment Law 101 - How To Protect Yourself From Discrimination
Have you even known someone experiencing discrimination in the workplace? If so, then you are aware how difficult such an experience can be, and that it is even more difficult to successfully advocate for yourself. This public workshop will provide a general background regarding laws upholding the rights of transgender workers to be free from harassment and discrimination, give you important tips for documenting a claim, explain how to negotiate within the organization, and how to find a lawyer who can help, if necessary. The workshop will be interactive in nature, with a short initial presentation on the background for each section, a role play exercise, audience discussion regarding the role play, and time for questions and answers. Sponsored by the Association of Transgender Professionals. Facilitators: Dr. Jillian T. Weiss and Sara Schnorr, Esq. A separate workshop for lawyers and law students will also be offered during the conference.
