Transgender Student and Employee Rights: What We Know and Don’t Know

May 11, 2023

12:00 p.m. - 1:00 p.m. CT

Spencer Fane attorneys Stephanie Lovett-Bowman and Ruthie White will present this timely webinar on transgender rights in schools and the workplace. Please note the rescheduled date below.

While federal agencies are moving toward the protection of transgender rights, many state legislatures are going in the opposite direction. As the landscape continues to evolve, educators are subject to confusing rules. This webinar will cover:

  • A review of the legal landscape, focusing on leading federal court decisions and OCR guidance;
  • Discussion of the many practical issues that arise with transgender students and employees, including bathrooms, overnight trips, requests to modify school records or employment records, employee objections to transgender policies, and more; and
  • Practical tips for policy considerations.
