Special Guest: October 3rd Coffee Break

Confused about the current legal landscape for LGBTQ people in the workplace?  Wondering if current news headlines mean anything for your employment at USPTO as LGBTQ person?  Jessica Hughes, Supervisory Attorney in the Office of EEO and Diversity, is joining us to discuss recent events and what they mean (or don’t mean) for USPTO employees.  She’ll provide a brief overview of President Trump’s recent directive about transgender people in the military and the Department of Justice’s intervention in Zarda v. Altitude Express and talk about USPTO policies.  Please come and bring your questions about this or other LGBTQ employment rights issues (Note:  Jessica cannot provide any legal advice or counsel.)
