Claims For Discrimination Based On Sexual Orientation
Title VII of the Civil Rights Act protects workers from discrimination on the basis of sexual orientation. Federal law prohibits discrimination “because of sex,” which the U.S. Supreme Court has held extends to members of the LGBT community. Employers may not make decisions about hiring, firing or promotions based on sexual orientation. Employers must also actively work to prohibit harassment from occurring in the workplace.
Employers may not engage in or tolerate harassment or discrimination because of a person’s sex or sexual orientation. If you feel you are suffering workplace discrimination, call us at 313-566-4787 or 800-221-6021 today.

Harassment Can Be Subtle And Come In Many Forms
Sexual discrimination is not always as obvious as blatant name-calling and harassing actions on the job. Determining whether you are a victim may require a close investigation into the actions of managerial hiring and promotion policies as well as a detailed review of important records. Before we accept a case, we make sure there is enough evidence to move forward with reasonable confidence that you deserve compensation.
