Learn about the groundbreaking case that has changed the
labor and employment landscape and what it means for your clients!

Get the information you need to advise your clients on this timely topic, including:

  • How the legal landscape of discrimination claims may be affected;
  • Who will be effected by this ruling;
  • Hively v Ivy Tech Community College[1] and the history behind the ruling; and
