Sexual Orientation & Gender Discrimination
The law protects gay, lesbian, bisexual, and transgender people from being discriminated against in the workplace. This means that no one should be harassed, terminated, or treated differently because of their sexual orientation or gender identity. The Law Offices of Eric A.

These two types of cases are the most common for those LGBT members of our society:
If you are a member of the LGBT community and your employer has taken adverse action against you in the form of:
- Firing you due to your gender identity or sexual orientation
- Reducing your hours or pay because of your gender identity or sexual orientation
- Reducing or excluding you from benefits because of your gender identity or sexual orientation
If you are a member of the LGBT community who:
- Is made uncomfortable at work because your coworkers or supervisors display animosity towards your sexual orientation
- Is consistently harassed, called names, subjected to jokes and pranks, or slurred by your coworkers and supervisors
