LGBTQ+ Discrimination

California has some of the strictest employment laws in the nation, preserving your right to receive fair treatment and equal benefits and protecting you from being exposed to hostile or discriminatory acts in the workplace.

LGBTQ+ Discrimination Comes in Many Forms

LGBTQ+ workplace discrimination takes many forms, both explicit and more subtle, all negatively affecting the victim’s professional and personal life. California law provides some of the strongest workplace protections in the nation but it takes an experienced attorney to help you fight for your rights.

Despite being illegal under California labor laws, sexual orientation discrimination still persists in the workplace, leading to harassment and unfair treatment. Understanding the laws surrounding sexual orientation discrimination is crucial for knowing and protecting employees’ rights. Read on to gain insight into this important issue.

Under the California Fair Employment and Housing Act, employers are prohibited from discriminating against individuals based on their actual or perceived sexual orientation. Sexual orientation encompasses bisexuality, homosexuality, and heterosexuality.

It also includes any perception of certain characteristics associated with a particular sexual orientation. Any adverse employment decision made on the basis of perceived or actual sexual orientation is considered unlawful discrimination.
