Franczek Webinar – Recent Supreme Court Decisions
Wednesday, July 26 at 12 p.m. Registration
At the conclusion of this year’s term the U.S. Supreme Court released a flurry of high-profile decisions that will have a lasting impact on schools and employers. Students for Fair Admissions, Inc v. President and Fellows of Harvard College, although ostensibly narrowly focused on race-conscious college admission programs, has potentially broad reaching implications for all education and employment related DEI and affirmative action initiatives. Groff v. DeJoy, Postmaster General, which increased the burden that an employer must meet in order to show that accommodating an employee’s religious belief would pose an undue hardship, and 303 Creative LLC v. Elenis, which held that a website designer had a First Amendment right to refuse to design wedding websites for same sex couples because doing so offended the designer’s religious beliefs, have significant ramifications for all institutions that must reconcile increasingly conflicting religious freedom rights with the right to be free from other forms of unlawful discrimination, particularly discrimination based on sexual orientation or gender identity.
Join Franczek attorneys Mike Warner, Nicki Bazer, and Eliza Kaye for a focused discussion and breakdown of these and other Supreme Court decisions and how they are likely to impact employers and educators.
For attorneys Illinois Continuing Legal Credit (CLE) will be available.
