Sexual Orientation Discrimination

How to Identify Sexual Orientation Discrimination

Sexual orientation discrimination occurs when an employer treats an employee or prospective employee differently on the basis of the employee’s sexual orientation. This can include discrimination based on a person’s heterosexuality, homosexuality and bisexuality, as well as gender identity and expression.

What Can I Recover In An Sexual Orientation Discrimination Case?

An employee that brings an sexual orientation discrimination claim is entitled to recover all lost wages and earnings incurred because of the discriminatory conduct. This includes both past earnings and those that will be lost in the future. An employee is also entitled to monetary compensation for mental suffering, anxiety, humiliation, and emotional distress, as well as possible punitive damages to deter the employer from engaging in similar conduct in the future.
