Sexual Orientation Discrimination Attorneys in Los Angeles
Legal Assistance for LGBTQ Employees
California has recognized sexual orientation and gender identity as protected characteristics since about the mid-2000s, but a 2020 U.S. Supreme Court ruling made this the law of the land. It is therefore unlawful for any employer in California and throughout the U.S. to discriminate against an employee because of his or her actual or perceived sexual orientation or gender identity.
Feldman Browne, APC represents California employees in claims for sexual orientation discrimination and harassment throughout the state. We understand that an employer’s discrimination against you is not only painful to endure, but can come with financial costs as a result of termination, lost wages, denial of benefits, and more.
Our goal as attorneys for sexual orientation discrimination in Los Angeles is to help employees fight for the compensation they deserve when they’re mistreated at work. We offer each client a personalized experience that accounts for the details of their situation and their goals for the future.
Examples of LGBTQ Discrimination
Discrimination against someone because of their sexual orientation or gender identity isn’t always overt. From an employee’s perspective, this can make it difficult to discern whether or not certain behaviors or policies are unlawful.
The following are examples of discrimination against members of the LGBTQ community:
- Termination after “coming out” as homosexual or transgender.
- Denial of benefits after marrying a same-sex spouse.
- Overlooked for promotion because of one’s sexual orientation or gender identity.
- Experiencing harassment and/or sexual harassment because of one’s orientation or gender identity.
- Termination after dressing in a manner consistent with one’s gender preference.
- Company policies that inherently favor a particular sexual orientation or gender over others.
The key thing to remember here is that your sexual orientation and gender identity can’t be a factor in how your employer or coworkers treat you. If you believe this to be the case, you should consult with a sexual orientation discrimination attorney in Los Angeles who can help you validate your claim and seek the proper legal recourse.
