Program Number: 3082 Presenter: William M. Pinzler, Esq.

For decades, the Courts, especially the Supreme Court, have been asked to balance the demands of people with sincerely held religious beliefs with the laws of an ordered society., Most recently religious conservatives have been pressing for a greater acceptance of their view that any kind of “sincere” religious belief should exempt them from conduct that they consider to interfere with those beliefs. This podcast and accompanying material will review how sincere religious beliefs have been examined during the 20th and 21st century, including claims of conscientious objection, with a focus on recent Supreme Court cases.

Money at Work -- the Gender Pay Gap: Effective Strategies in the #MeToo Era (04/30/2020)

Program Number: 3076 Presenter: Kathleen Caminiti, Esq., Cheryl Pinarchick, Esq.

The topic of harassment, and sexual harassment in particular, has become an increasing concern for employers – not only in regard to their own personal behavior but also regarding the overall reputation of their organization as a harassment-free workplace. The #MeToo movement has heightened awareness of gender and power issues. However, an unintended consequence of the #MeToo movement had been risk of segregation of women professionals, a phenomenon that ultimately can lead to the denial of advancement opportunities and pay disparity. The purpose of this webinar is to educate employers about the existence of discriminatory compensation practices in the workplace and to think strategically about legal compliance and pay equality. We will explore the ramifications of gender segregation in the #MeToo era, provide an overview of current pay equity laws, and offer practical advice on how to identify and address implicit bias that can lead to potential gender discrimination and pay

Why the Equal Rights Amendment Still Matters, and How Lawyers Are Leading the Effort (10/05/2020)

Program Number: 30236 Presenter: Linda T. Coberly, Esq., Thomas P. Fitzgerald, Esq.

Nearly fifty years ago, Congress passed the Equal Rights Amendment with overwhelming support from both sides of the aisle and sent it to the states for ratification. By the late 1970s, 35 states had ratified—three short of the 38 required for a constitutional amendment. Now, the ERA is surging forward once again. Since 2017, three additional states have ratified, passing the constitutional threshold. The House of Representatives has voted to remove the time limit imposed in the 1970s—with a similar bill pending in the Senate—and the Attorneys General of the three most recent ratifying states (Virginia, Illinois, and Nevada) have filed a lawsuit challenging the time limit’s effectiveness. In this special program, you will learn about why ratifying the ERA is still important and necessary, what the ERA would (and would not) accomplish, and why it is not too late. You will also learn about the role lawyers are
