At the Cross-Section of Gender Discrimination and Religious Liberty

The friction between antidiscrimination laws and religious liberty claims continues to heat up in the wake of last year’s Supreme Court decisions in Bostock v. Clayton County and Our Lady of Guadalupe School v. Morrissey-Berru. In this webinar, Professors Sullivan and Bornstein explore developments since those decisions and discuss potential remaining issues at their intersection. They discuss whether we are on the verge of a judicial version of the grand compromise rejected in the legislative proposals of the Employment Non-Discrimination Act and the Equality Act—that is, robust antidiscrimination protections for LGBTQ+ individuals counterbalanced by equally robust exclusions for religious organizations. They also engage with how such an approach may apply to religiously motivated but secular private employers. Join them for a timely conversation on these emerging issues in employment discrimination law.
