Transgendered in Central New York: Employer - Legal Do’s and Don’ts

Syracuse Doubletree Hotel, 6301 State Route 298, E. Syracuse, NY
Registration and breakfast: 8 a.m.
Program: 8:30 - 10:30 a.m.

This two hour program will explore what it is like to be transgendered and working in Central New York.

The program will be a legal presentation from Christa Cook from Bond, Schoeneck & King PLLC. She will cover the legal “do’s and don’ts” a company should prepare for as the transgendered community grows.

Following the legal discussion we will have a panel of two transgendered individuals who will share their personal story, as well as being employed or looking for employment in today’s workforce. In addition there will be a current HR representative from a local company on the panel. They will give insights into what they have been noticing in their workplace and what other HR professionals should be aware of and ready for.

This program has been approved for 2.0 General HRCI credits for PHR, SPHR and GPHR and 2.0 PDC credits through SHRM for SHRM-CP and SHRM–SCP.
