Woodland Hills Sexual Orientation Discrimination Lawyers

Caring & Aggressive Assistance for those in Hostile Workplaces

Discrimination based on an employee’s sexual orientation is defined by the Equal Employment Opportunity Commission, or EEOC, as harassment, neglect, or other discrimination based on gender stereotypes and the romantic relationships one chooses to engage in. These cases are defined under sex discrimination claims and are relatively new to the court system. LGBTQ employees have rights, however, and it is important that you seek qualified representation from a Woodland Hills discrimination attorney who is familiar with this nuanced and emerging area of the law.

Call the Law Office of Payab & Associates at (818) 918-5522 to discuss your situation with our skilled team.

Your Rights & Protections

While the State of California prohibits discrimination based on an employee’s sexual orientation, local laws may vary based on your company’s policies and the city your company is located in.

In general, discrimination laws provide the following for LGBTQ employees:

  • A workplace free from harassment
  • Equal opportunity based on job performance
  • Protection based on gender identity
  • Emotional distress due to negligence or intentional harassment
  • Protection from physical assault
  • Protection from defamation or invasion of privacy
  • Protection from wrongful termination
