Professor Green, and Professor Emerita Becker, Participate in “State of LGBT Rights” CLE Program

On October 30th, Professor Matthew Green participated in a CLE event at Cleveland-Marshall College of Law entitled “Unfinished Business: The State of LGBT Rights post-Obergefell v. Hodges.”  Professor Green’s presentation focused on the absence of explicit prohibitions of employment discrimination on the basis of sexual orientation and gender identity under federal statutory law; conflicting case law regarding whether LBGT employees are protected under Title VII of the Civil Rights Act of 1964; and legislation recently introduced in Congress that would protect LGBT workers from discrimination in employment.  The event was cosponsored by the Cleveland-Marshall College of Law, the ACLU of Ohio, the Cleveland-Metropolitan Bar Association, Equality Ohio and the American Constitution Society for Law and Policy.
Susan Becker, Professor Emerita, also participated in the same event.
