Sexual Orientation Discrimination Can Involve More Than Harassment
Like other types of workplace discrimination, sexual orientation discrimination can happen in multiple ways. This kind of discrimination involves being harassed or otherwise treated differently on the basis of your real or perceived sexual orientation. Employees or job applicants who identify as gay, lesbian, bisexual, asexual, or heterosexual may experience this kind of discrimination in the workplace.
In addition to harassment by employers, co-workers, or customers, sexual orientation discrimination may involve:
Being overlooked for a promotion
Being unduly disciplined or assigned undesirable tasks
Denial of employment benefits
Denial of employment
You May Be Entitled To Compensation
As an employee or a job applicant, you have a right not to be discriminated against on the basis of your sex or your sexual orientation. If you have experienced this kind of discrimination in the workplace or the hiring process, our sexual orientation discrimination lawyers in Houston can investigate your case and gather the necessary evidence to build a strong claim on your behalf.
Our goal is to hold the wrongdoer accountable — and to secure full and fair compensation for you.
