We Help Victims Of Sexual Orientation And Gender Identity Discrimination
Members of the lesbian, gay, bisexual and transgender (LGBT) community routinely suffer discrimination in their personal lives. When discrimination occurs at work, the legal team at Employee Advocates, LLC, in Naugatuck is prepared to represent victims in discrimination lawsuits.
While there is no federal law protecting employees against discrimination based on sexual orientation or gender identity, a state law does exist that prohibits discrimination based on sexual orientation or gender identification.
As with other discrimination laws, it is illegal for employers to fire someone or refuse to hire someone based on sexual orientation or the expression of gender identity. It also is illegal for employers to discriminate against LGBT workers in decisions regarding promotions or pay.
