    Managing the Health and Safety of the LGBT Mobile Workforce

    Weiden + Kennedy trans 

    For employers with international operations, there is no one-size-fits all answer when it comes to questions surrounding workplace law and LGBT employees. For workers in the United States, the scope of legal protections has evolved drastically over the past few years but still involves a patchwork of differing standards. Although the U.S. Supreme Court officially made same-sex marriage legal across the country in 2015, antidiscrimination and anti-harassment laws continue to vary from state to state, and even from city to city.

    Matters become even more complicated for overseas employees, as more than 70 countries still classify homosexual behavior as a crime. The severity of punishment and levels of enforcement varies significantly across the world. For example, in Sudan, Iran, Yemen, Saudi Arabia, and other countries, the death penalty is used as punishment for same-sex relations. Some countries, such as India, may instead impose life imprisonment. Even in countries where same-sex relations are not criminalized, however, certain public pronouncements on this topic may be restricted. For example, in Russia, public affirmations of “non-traditional sexual relations” are prohibited.

    The end result is a very complicated world map as far as what is, and is not, legal for today’s global worker.

    Insurance Coverage for Data Breaches
    Perkins Coie 2

    One of the most significant risks that any modern business faces is increasingly inevitable likelihood of a data breach. Data breaches and the potential privacy-related events that follow implicate a complex web of state and federal laws and regulatory frameworks. On top of this, the often-required public disclosure of a business’s loss, theft or inadvertent disclosure of data is likely to invite demands, litigation or a government investigation, making data breaches a very expensive problem for any business. This presentation equips riskPerkins Coie jpg professionals with the tools to maximize their company’s insurance coverage in the event of a data breach by focusing on the most common claims that arise out of a data breach, the core forms of coverage that respond to such claims, and best practices regarding how to prepare and report data breach-related claims to your company’s insurer(s) and leverage any potential additional insured coverage available to the company.
