Federal laws strictly prohibit discrimination on the basis of sexual orientation or gender identity in the workplace. Although it is illegal to do so, LGBTQ+ employees still face many forms of discrimination in the workplace. For this reason, many members of the LGBTQ+ community feel insecure at work, suffer humiliating insults, and are even denied the possibility of a promotion.

Here in California, there are specific LGBTQ+ employment rights you should know about in case you face this type of discrimination.

If you feel that you are being treated unjustly, it is crucial to contact a lawyer with experience representing clients in these types of situations. Our dedicated team at Aiman-Smith & Marcy will help you hold those responsible accountable.
