A little more than a year ago, the Pentagon lifted its ban on transgender people serving openly in the military, noted Elizabeth Marvin, an attorney with Lewis Baach in Washington, D.C. Reversing the decision "will undoubtedly adversely impact transgender service members who are currently serving openly under the Obama-era policy," she said.
HR should be aware that Trump's decision "will impassion people on both sides of the issue. Managers need to be educated about transgender issues, and companies should adopt a zero-tolerance policy regarding harassment of transgender employees," Marvin said. "Work should be a place where transgender employees feel safe and are not judged."Society for Human Resource Management, July 27, 2017
Asked whether there was any chance the bill could be enacted, Elizabeth Marvin, a Washington-based lawyer with Lewis Baach, told IBTimes UK: "there's a very slim chance... they certainly could enact it but it would be challenged and in light of the Supreme Court decision in Obergefell v Hodges it would be struck down as unconstitutional."International Business Times, April 12, 2017
“The transgender community is certainly in limbo, which is difficult because the community has been highlighted and sort of brought to the surface in recent months,” said Lewis Baach PLLC partner Elizabeth Marvin. “A lot of attention has been placed on them, and there are no specific protections for them.”Law360, March 30, 2017
Elizabeth Marvin, an attorney with Lewis Baach in Washington, D.C., said that whether Title IX encompasses gender identity discrimination "could potentially have an impact on employers, because it would require the [Suprerme] Court to consider whether Title IX's prohibition on discrimination on the basis of sex includes gender identity," should the issue again reach the Supreme Court. "A decision that 'sex' as used in Title IX encompasses gender identity would effectively expand the definition of 'sex' as used in other statutes, such as Title VII."Society for Human Resource Management, March 8, 2017
Complaints brought by employees belonging to what is traditionally the majority group should be taken as seriously as complaints brought by employees belonging to historically disadvantaged groups, noted Elizabeth Marvin, an attorney with Lewis Baach in Washington, D.C.Society for Human Resource Managment, January 3, 2017
A decision by the Supreme Court overturning the 4th Circuit's decision could "considerably erode" the American Civil Liberties Union's (ACLU's) challenge to H.B. 2 in Carcaño, said Elizabeth Marvin, an attorney with Lewis Baach in Washington, D.C.Society for Human Resource Management, November 3, 2016
Elizabeth Marvin, an attorney with Lewis Baach in Washington, D.C., agreed, saying, "A holding that the bill also violates Title VII [of the Civil Rights Act of 1964] is a logical extension of the Aug. 26 holding." However, she added, "It is far too early to predict an ultimate outcome."Society for Human Resource Management, September 1, 2016
Transgender individuals are feeling the brunt of the law, said Elizabeth Marvin, an attorney with Lewis Baach in Washington, D.C.
"Because H.B. 2 will be difficult if not impossible to enforce, it will create a culture in which private citizens feel that they have the right and duty to be gender monitors in public restrooms," Marvin said. She cautioned that this "could potentially result in more violence and harassment directed toward transgender individuals."Society for Human Resource Mangement, August 15, 2016
