LGBTQ+ Harassment In The Workplace
Our San Francisco LGBT harassment attorneys fight to protect employees from the absolute degradation of LGBTQ+ harassment in the workplace. Our lawyers have seen firsthand the impact that hostile work environments have on employees’ lives — employees who should never have to fight for fair treatment, for the right to pursue their livelihoods free from discrimination.
It is against both California and federal law to discriminate against someone in the workplace because he, she, or they are lesbian, gay, bisexual, queer or transgender. California’s Fair Employment and Housing Act (FEHA) specifically lists “sexual orientation” as a protected class, making LGBTQ+ harassment strictly illegal.
Act Quickly To Protect Your Rights
Most employers have anti-discrimination policies in place. They may also follow internal rules and procedures that direct the process, including deadlines, filing forms, and issuing statements. Ensure you follow their policies to avoid a negative impact on your case under the guidance and direction of a San Francisco LGBT harassment attorney.
There are deadlines for employment harassment claims. If you have experienced harassment in the workplace on account of your sexual orientation, protect your rights by calling (415) 909-3945 as soon as possible.
During your consultation, we will explain your rights and discuss your options for filing an LGBTQ+ harassment claim with the California Department of Fair Employment and Housing (DFEH) or the Equal Employment Opportunity Commission (EEOC).
Your Legal Rights — Sexual Orientation Discrimination
You have legal rights when facing sexual orientation discrimination. The Armstrong Law Firm will help you take a stand against an employer or boss who refuses to recognize these rights. We will help you fight for lost earnings and benefits, future lost wages, pain and suffering, and more by filing an actionable claim.
A wide variety of actions and inactions can be considered workplace discrimination and harassment under the FEHA, including:
- Hiring, firing, layoff and demotion decisions based on sexual orientation
- Intimidation and other actions that constitute a hostile work environment
- Harassment for acting “unmasculine” or “unfeminine”
- Retaliation for asserting your legal rights
- Reducing or refusing benefits based on sexual orientation
- Failing to pay equal compensation due to sexual orientation
According to UCLA’s Williams Institute, more than 20 percent of LGBTQ+ employees report having been harassed or discriminated against in the workplace on account of their sexual orientation or gender identity. Yet, few take legal action to hold employers accountable, allowing these illegal workplace practices to continue. Do not let this happen in your case.
State and Federal Anti-Discrimination Laws Protect Your Rights
There are several laws that address LGBT harassment in the workplace. They generally fall under discrimination and harassment laws. Our San Francisco LGBT harassment attorney will help you determine your legal options under these laws.
The Armstrong Law Firm has helped victims of workplace harassment and discrimination pursue cases under:
- California Department of Managed Healthcare Regulations
- California Fair Employment and Housing Act
- SB 1146 religious exemption notification requirement
- SB 703 government contracting requirement
- Title IX of the Civil Rights Act of 1964
- Title VII of the Civil Rights Act of 1964
- Other applicable laws
Under these rules, our legal team will investigate your case to discover admissible evidence that we can use to tell your side of the story. The Armstrong Law Firm has years of collective experience in helping the LGBT community protect against a wide range of claims so that they experience the safest work environment possible.
