Philadelphia Discrimination Lawyers: LGBTQ Discrimination and Harassment

November 10th, 2016
lgbtq employees

The Harris Poll conducted a study entitled the Out & Equal Workplace Survey and found that 67 percent of Americans are in favor of equal protections for LGBTQ individuals in employment, housing, and public accommodations. They also found that many Americans are unaware that currently there is no federal law in place to protect members of the LGBTQ community from discrimination. Only 13 percent of those surveyed were aware that it is legal to terminate someone because of his or her sexual orientation or gender identity in 28 states.

Support for non-discrimination protection for LGBTQ employees has grown dramatically over the past several years; however, the U.S. Equal Employment Opportunity Commission (EEOC) recently reported that complaints of workplace harassment against LGBTQ employees have increased 28 percent since 2015.

If you have experienced workplace harassment or discrimination because of your gender identity or sexual orientation you may be protected by LGBTQ anti-discrimination laws. Call Philadelphia discrimination lawyers at The Gold Law Firm P.C. at 215-569-1999 or contact us online for a free consultation. Victims of employment discrimination or workplace harassment may be entitled to significant compensation.
