Track: Employment Law & Legislation

As of March 2010, 2,020 same-sex couples were married in Iowa, and only 815 of those were Iowans. Regardless of whether your business operates in all 50 states or just one building, marriage and other issues relating to lesbian, gay, bisexual and transgender (LGBT) employees may impact your business soon, if not already. This session will update you on the relevant laws and regulations and provide you with specific insights and tools to be prepared.
