New Developments in Discrimination Law

New developments in discrimination law may change the way employers develop internal policies, procedures, and trainings. Our presentation will focus on implications under the recent Bostock decision and gender sidelining, a possible new legal theory generating buzz in employment law circles


Lindsay Hesketh
Associate at Sherman & Howard
Small and large employers turn to Lindsay to dig into the details of their matters, determine the real issues, and work toward realistic resolutions that make sense for each individual business’s needs. Lindsay Hesketh helps employers protect their employees, confidential information, and company values both proactively and through litigation. She advises companies on how to keep their policies in conformance with current federal, state, and local laws and pursues litigation strategically. No matter the stage of the dispute, Lindsay is committed to helping clients work through difficult workplace issues, including discipline, separations, and serious allegations of misconduct. Lindsay’s community involvement reflects her passion for promoting diversity and inclusion within educational and professional settings. To that end, she regularly conducts screening interviews for Judicial Intern Opportunity Program applicants and participates in panels and discussions about diversity in the legal profession. Before joining Sherman & Howard, Lindsay interned for the Honorable Raner C. Collins at the U.S. District Court for the District of Arizona and for the Honorable Maurice Portley (ret.) at the Arizona Court of Appeals. Lindsay’s practice includes advising clients on federal, state, and local employment laws. Upon admission to the California bar, Lindsay looks forward to becoming more active and involved with clients’ workplace issues specific to California law.


Amy Knapp
Associate at Sherman & Howard
Amy represents Colorado companies, national employers, and international companies on all aspects of employment and labor-related issues. From single-plaintiff actions to class and collective actions in federal and state courts, Amy Knapp has taken on and favorably resolved cases arising from employment disputes, discrimination, harassment and retaliation claims, wage and hour issues, employment and other contract disputes, and alleged employment law violations. She often assists clients in resolving charges brought before state and federal agencies, including unfair labor practice charges before the National Labor Relations Board (NLRB) and charges of discrimination brought before the Equal Employment Opportunity Commission (EEOC) and the Colorado Civil Rights Division (CCRD). Further, she regularly reviews, revises, and advises on employment policies and practices, personnel issues, and the legal implications of management decisions. In each matter she handles, Amy listens carefully to what her clients want to achieve. Then she conducts the necessary research, analyzes potential options, and formulates a plan to achieve the desired result. A former clerk for two plaintiff-side employment firms and the EEOC, Amy possesses practical insight into how best to defend discrimination and retaliation claims. Prior to Sherman & Howard, Amy was an associate at a large labor and employment defense firm.
