Whether you are lesbian, gay, straight, bisexual or a transgender, the law in California is on your side. Employers are responsible to provide equal opportunities, regardless of your sexual orientation. If you believe you were treated differently because of your sexual orientation, we may be able to help you take action. Our Los Angeles County LGBT discrimination lawyers have extensive experience proving fault against employers for:
- Denying a promotional opportunity based on someone's sexual orientation
- Refusing to pay LGBT employees the same as straight workers
- Excluding LGBT employees from certain types of job opportunities
- Denying LGBT employees the same benefits as straight employees
- Allowing co-workers to harass and create a hostile work environment
At Calderone Law Firm, we understand you may be reluctant to pursue an LGBT discrimination claim. Like most workers, you depend on your job to make ends meet. You may fear stirring the pot could cause you to lose your job. This would be considered wrongful termination. Employers can be held responsible for retaliating against employees. We are highly skilled at handling discrimination and wrongful termination claims. You can feel confident knowing we have the skills, experience and tenacity to help you assert your rights.Take Action With Our Manhattan Beach Gay and Lesbian Discrimination Lawyers
