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.

- 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
