Seyferth Blumenthal & Harris LLC (SBH) partner Daniel Ramón recently authored an article featured in Thinking Bigger Business magazine in Kansas City. He wrote about the current landscape of federal, state and local laws that offer LGBT employees protection from discrimination.
Ramón addresses the conflicting guidance in the article, writing, “Even the federal government itself is split on the issue. The Equal Employment Opportunity Commission, which is responsible for enforcement of Title VII, has taken the position that all LGBT discrimination violates Title VII. The Department of Justice takes the opposite view — reversing the prior administration’s position.”

Ramón concentrates his practice in employment law and general civil litigation at the trial and appellate level. His experience covers a wide range of subject areas, including: employment discrimination and retaliation lawsuits; enforcement of covenants not to compete; drafting of employee handbook and other agreements; and complex business disputes, including those involving trade secrets, contracts, fiduciary duties, and insurance litigation. He also counsels employers on compliance with state and federal statutes.
Both Missouri & Kansas Super Lawyers and Texas Super Lawyers have named Ramón a “Rising Star.” Prior to SBH, Ramón practiced law for eight years in Austin, Texas.
