Siegal & Richardson will help you pursue your case about sexual orientation discrimination

It is illegal in California for an employer to discriminate against an employee based on the employee’s sexual orientation. This law protects individuals who identify themselves as heterosexual, gay, lesbian, bisexual, transgender or transsexual. It’s also important to note that an an employer may not discriminate against an employee based on a perception of the employee’s sexual orientation. That is, if an employer discriminates against you because he or she thinks you’re gay, even if you’re not, it is a violation of the law.
