The Philadelphia & South Jersey employment lawyers Eric A. Shore and Graham F. Baird can help. We have handled countless Adverse Action and Sexual Harassment cases for gay and transgender Americans.
These two types of cases are the most common for those LGBT members of our society:
Adverse Action in the Workplace
If you are a LGBT member of society 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
Your employer may be discriminating against you and the employment attorneys at the Law Offices of Eric A. Shore can help you stop the discrimination and protect your rights.
Sexual Harassment in the Workplace
If you are a LGBT citizen who:
- Is made uncomfortable at work because your coworkers or supervisors display animosity towards your sexual orientation
