Comcast Executive Files LGBTQ Discrimination Suit Against Employer

October 23rd, 2019
trans equality discrimination

A longtime Comcast executive filed a LGBTQ discrimination suit against his employer in Philadelphia in early October. The executive served as the LGBTQ liaison for the company and worked with them for nearly 20 years. He claims that he faced name-calling, was passed over for promotions, failed to receive equal pay for his work, and encouraged to leave the office and transfer to another because of his sexual orientation. In 2018, he filed complaints against Comcast at the Philadelphia Commission on Human Relations and, as a result, allegedly endured workplace retaliation by being excluded from meetings and receiving more work as well as a contending with a hostile work environment.

Being treated differently by an employer or colleague due to a worker’s sexual orientation or another characteristic the individual may possess is a hallmark of employment discrimination. The discrimination may be comprised of disrespectful comments, demotions, exclusion from assignments or meetings, a hostile work environment, or even wrongful termination. At this time, no federal protections exist for employees facing discrimination because of their sexual orientation or gender identity, but the US Supreme Court recently heard arguments regarding this issue, so changes may be on the horizon.
