LGBT Rights

California law prohibits discrimination against employees based on their sexual orientation, gender identity, and gender expression. Most employers may not harass employees or make employment decisions such as hiring, termination, promotion, training, or compensation based on sexual orientation or because an employee’s perceived gender or anatomic sex is incongruent with their gender identity and expression. Most employers also may not retaliate against employees who complain about harassment or discrimination based on sexual orientation or gender identity or expression.

The law in these areas is still developing and, therefore, is constantly changing. If you believe you may have been discriminated against, harassed, or terminated because of your LGBT status, or your employer is retaliating against you for complaining about harassment or discrimination based on LGBT status, you need employment law specialists on your side. Sarnoff + Sarnoff is committed to advancing employee rights and bringing to justice any employer that engages in, encourages, or fails to prevent discrimination, harassment, or retaliation in the workplace.
