Gender fluid & non-binary individuals protected by Equality Act - the actions your business should be taking

Freeths would like to invite you to this national employment webinar.

Freeths will be supported by Robin White, from Old Square Chambers. Robin acted for the claimant in the Taylor v Jaguar Land Rover case. Since her own gender transition in 2011 she has advised extensively on transgender matters and acted in a number of transgender cases for both employers and employees. Robin will be sharing with us what lessons the Taylor case has for diversity and inclusion. The Equality Act 2010 protects individuals from being discriminated against in the workplace due to protected characteristics such as; race, religion, sexual orientation, age, gender, pregnancy, disability and gender reassignment. The recent landmark decision in Ms R Taylor v Jaguar Land Rover Ltd, found that complex gender identities also fall within the definition of gender reassignment. Therefore, equality policies need to make this very clear, along with a review of all other policies and procedures that are unnecessarily gendered. We will discuss how gender fluid & non-binary individuals are protected from discrimination in the workplace, and provide guidance on how to best manage complex gender identities including terminology and how to train managers on the implementation of new ways of working. Date: Tuesday 12th January 2021Time: 10am - 11:15am Venue: Via Zoom
