Results-Oriented Washington, DC Employment Discrimination Attorney
Wrongful Treatment Based on Sexual Orientation or Gender Identity | Hiring| Promotion | Termination | Workplace Perks and Benefits
Though the U.S. Congress has not expressly prohibited discrimination in the workplace based on sexual orientation or gender identity, the U.S. Supreme Court has held that Title VII of the Civil Rights Act, which prohibits gender discrimination, also provides some protection to workers who don’t fit conventional sexual roles. Some courts have applied this ruling to LBGT issues, finding discrimination based on sexual orientation illegal. In addition, a number of states, including Washington, DC, have enacted laws making sexual orientation and gender identity protected classes for the purposes of discrimination lawsuits. If you or someone you love has been unfairly treated at work because of sexual orientation or gender identity, attorney Boniface K. Cobbina can help.
