Los Angeles Sexual Orientation Discrimination Attorney

Laws that prohibit sexual orientation discrimination have come a long way in recent years. While rulings across the country have been mixed, the landmark U.S. Supreme Court case Bostock v. Clayton County, Georgia, ruled that one’s sexual orientation is protected by the Civil Rights Act of 1964.

If you have experienced discrimination based on your sexual orientation, our dedicated legal team at Mancini & Associates will stand up for your rights. Consult with our sexual orientation discrimination attorneys in Los Angeles to discuss the details of your case.

How Prevalent is Sexual Orientation Discrimination?

The rights of the LGBTQ community have evolved rapidly. However, discrimination can still affect people in various aspects of their lives, including in the workplace.

According to the study, Discrimination in the United States: Experiences of lesbian, gay, bisexual, transgender, and queer Americans, several different types of discrimination were common for LGBTQ adults, including:

  • 57% have had slurs directed at them
  • 53% have suffered microaggressions
  • 51% have experienced sexual harassment
  • 51% confess to suffering violence
  • 34% have been harassed about bathroom use
  • 18% avoid medical care for fear of discrimination
  • 16% have experienced discrimination by health care workers

The study concludes that sexual orientation discrimination is rampant in the U.S. If you or a loved one have suffered derogatory slurs, statements, or more subtle forms of intolerance, seek the counsel of an experienced sexual orientation discrimination lawyer today.

What Does Sexual Orientation Discrimination Look Like in Los Angeles?

Everyone has a right to be treated equally and fairly. Whether at work or the doctor’s office, you have a right to be free of discrimination.

  • If an employer or supervisor promotes only those of one specific sexual orientation over the another
  • If someone makes disparaging remarks, including threats or slurs
  • Singling out and bullying those of a particular sexual orientation
  • Creating a hostile work environment, including posting derogatory cartoons or material, harassing behavior, making threats, or making subtle, passive-aggressive jokes
  • If an employer or supervisor shows any special treatment to one sexual orientation over the other, including promotion,  scheduling more desirable shifts, hours, and/or assignments
  • If a customer or client refuses to do business with you due to your sexual orientation
  • If your employer or supervisor retaliates against you for making a formal complaint by sending you home or suspending you
