Northstar Church and Nonprofit Video Conference August 26th

Dramatic Virginia Employment Law Changes, COVID-19, Supreme Court Discrimination Decisions – What Do They All Have in Common?

Churches, nonprofits, religious schools, and other religious entities are faced with unique challenges in 2020. These organizations nationwide must reckon with unprecedented challenges in responding to the health, financial, and legal perils in order to continue their ministry during the continuing COVID-19 pandemic. At the same time, this summer the U.S. Supreme Court redefined employer’s nondiscrimination obligations under the Civil Rights Act of 1964, now applying on the basis of sexual orientation and gender identity (Bostock v. Clayton County).

On top of that, this year the General Assembly recreated Virginia’s employment law landscape and all employers will need to make sure they are in compliance with the new legal framework that took effect July 1, 2020. These changes create new liabilities concerning: independent contracting relationships, discrimination on the basis of new classes (including sexual orientation and gender identity), public accommodations, stricter standards for defending against allegations by employees generally, and others.

Come join Rob Showers and Will Thetford on Wednesday, August 26, 9:00-10:15 AM to learn more.

Rob Showers will speak as the Christian Legal Society welcomes ministers, church executive pastors, and other church leaders for a special Pastors’ Forum on Friday, November 1, 2019, in conjunction with the 2019 CLS National Conference in Chicago. As a national grass-roots organization, we seek to equip church ministry personnel with legal guidance and support through this special learning opportunity provided by leading Christian attorneys. The Pastors’ Forum will include the following: (a) morning welcome session; (b) the conference religious liberty plenary session featuring nationally renowned attorneys including Rob Showers providing updates and insights; (c) lunch together with a Q & A attorney panel who will address key legal issues for church leaders; (d) two afternoon workshop sessions, with options including child protection systems, nonprofit employment law, effective investigations, and cybersecurity; and (e) late afternoon plenary session with Dr. Mark Jobe, the senior pastor and president of Moody Bible Institute.

In this podcast with Dr. Drumm McNaughton of The Change Leader, Rob Showers discusses how sexual harassment complaints used to be handled, particularly within the context of higher education, and how recent cultural shifts will radically adjust “how things have always been.” Rob also discusses how institutions of higher education should adapt to the new cultural paradigm.
