Diversity and inclusion come in many forms. This year's employment law webinar, presented by Jacklyn Ford from the OAB’s Ohio counsel of Vorys, Sater, Seymour, and Pease, LLP, focused on the practical aspects of promoting diversity and inclusion while complying with state and federal legal requirements. Topics included:
- EEO 101 – basic legal requirements for prohibiting discrimination and harassment;
- Addressing diversity of political expression, e.g., MAGA hats and BLM shirts in the workplace, and protest and politics off-the-clock;
- Recent Supreme Court decision prohibiting workplace sexual orientation discrimination; and
- Disability discrimination issues when accommodating COVID-related absences.
