If you are a member of the LGBT community, your employer may not discriminate against you. While federal law protects certain claims under LGBT discrimination, but even though the federal law has come a long way, the greatest protections afforded to LGBT community is under New York State and New York City Law. Any comments or conduct of a derogatory nature made against you on account of your membership in the LGBT community may qualify as discrimination. Furthermore, if you are treated differently as a member of the LGBT community than other employees, you may also have a claim against your employer. Contact us today to see whether you have a case.
