LGTBQIA+ Discrimination Overview

Whether straight, gay, lesbian, bisexual, transgender, queer, intersexual, asexual, or otherwise, you deserve to work free of discrimination. Your sexual orientation has no bearing on your ability to do your job. Unfortunately, some employers forget that on occasion. And that’s where the sexual orientation – LGTBQIA+ discrimination attorneys at Carter Law Group come in.

According to the Equal Employment Opportunity Commission (EEOC),  Title VII of the Civil Rights Act of 1964 forbids employers and potential employers from discriminating against employees and job applicants on the basis of their sexual orientation. While many courts across the country have agreed with the EEOC’s determination, this is certainly a developing area of law, especially in Texas.

The City of Dallas and Tarrant County, for instance, have both passed ordinances prohibiting sexual orientation discrimination.

In practice, sexual orientation discrimination often looks like:

  • Promoting gender-based stereotypes within the office – such as how women or men should act, dress, speak, and behave.
  • Making “gay jokes” or derogatory comments about an employee’s sexual orientation
  • An employer keeping physical distance from an employee because of his sexual orientation. For instance, a male employer who invites a straight male employee to an out-of-town conference but declines to invite a homosexual male employee in the same position.

Carter Law Group Fights For LGTBQIA+ Discrimination Victims

Victims of sexual orientation – LGTBQIA+ discrimination can be entitled to back pay, front pay, liquidated damages, attorney’s fees, and/or job reinstatement. But timing for a discrimination case is critical. Before filing a lawsuit alleging charges of sexual orientation – LGTBQIA+ discrimination, you must file a charge with the EEOC. A charge is a signed statement explaining the ways your employer discriminated against you and asks the EEOC to take action. To ensure your interests are protected, you should contact an experienced sexual orientation discrimination attorney before filing the EEOC charge.

Contact a Dallas, Texas sexual orientation – LGTBQIA+ discrimination lawyer at Carter Law Group today to immediately begin building a strong and effective case.

Let’s meet. And let’s right that wrong. Together.
