Los Angeles Sexual Orientation Discrimination Attorneys

Protecting the Rights of Employees in LA

One benefit that comes with living in California is that there are key laws that protect employees from employer discrimination, whether such discrimination is for someone’s sexual orientation, expression, or identity. Such laws include the California Fair Employment and Housing Act (FEHA), along with Title VII of the Civil Rights Act of 1964.

Unfortunately, workplace discrimination still runs rampant amongst many employers. When you have suffered such injustice at the hands of your employer, it is important to know that you are not alone in the fight because King & Siegel LLP’s employment law firm is here to protect your rights. Trust our Los Angeles sexual orientation discrimination lawyers in Los Angeles to wage war against injustice.

What Discrimination Against Sexual Orientation Looks Like

Sometimes discrimination against an employee’s sexual orientation can be extremely overt, such as a case of firing a worker who states that she is a lesbian. However, what is far more typical nowadays is that a prejudiced employer will not verbally admit their bias. Rather than demonstrate their bias in a manner that could be easily observed and lead to an HR complaint, employers often tend to be very subtle in their discrimination, as they try to make workers so miserable that they force them to quit rather than continue to suffer their intolerable working conditions.

Some subtle examples of sexual orientation discrimination include:

  • Either refusing to promote or disqualifying an employee based on their sexual orientation or identity;
    Making situations, events, or environments where a person of a certain sexual orientation would feel uncomfortable, ashamed, or unwelcome;
  • Behaving in a harassing manner, or allowing others to engage in sexual harassment or verbal discrimination with the intention that the employee would resign;
  • Implemented seeming “neutral” policies made against the expression of sexual orientation, or related activities, in the hopes of finding an excuse to fire the targeted employee not adhering to the “rules”;
  • Giving more opportunities for training and better work assignments to members of a particular sexual orientation.
