Individuals who are denied employment, promotion, are harassed at the workplace, or otherwise discriminated against because of their gender expression or gender identity are currently not protected by any federal or Pennsylvania state laws. At Sidney L. Gold & Associates, our discrimination lawyers in Philadelphia strongly advocate for members of the lesbian, gay, bisexual, and transgender (LGBT) communities who are harassed or discriminated against at their place of employment.
The Civil Rights Act of 1964 protects individuals from being discriminated against because of their sex, and has been used to defend the rights of LGBT employees. The Equal Employment Opportunity Commission has also been active in holding employers accountable for discriminatory practices involving the LGBT community. Philadelphia employment discrimination law firm of Sidney L. Gold & Associates are dedicated to defending the rights of all employees regardless of their gender identity or expression.
