Providing Legal Counsel for Sexual Orientation Discrimination Claims

California law prohibits discrimination against an employee for their sexual orientation. If you are gay, lesbian or perceived as such at work, and feel you have been treated differently because of your sexual orientation, you may have a claim.

Our employment discrimination attorneys assist clients with all types of employment claims involving sexual orientation discrimination, including:

  • Harassment by employers and co-workers
  • Not hiring the most qualified candidate because of their sexual orientation
  • Denial of family or medical leave for same-sex couples who have or adopt a child
  • Retaliatory termination for complaints about discrimination or harassment
  • Denial of promotions
  • Wrongful termination

Discrimination Based on Perceived Sexual Orientation

It is also illegal to discriminate against an employee because of perceived sexual orientation. If you are heterosexual, and your employer or co-workers perceive you as homosexual and they have treated you unfairly as a result, you may have a claim for discrimination.
