Discrimination Based on Sexual Orientation

Currently, there are no state or federal laws in place that prohibit discrimination based on sexual orientation. However, in many instances there are protections in place designed to address these shortcomings. City and municipal ordinances may prohibit discrimination based on sexual orientation. Company employment policies may also offer protections. At Sterling Attorneys at Law, our Detroit lawyers represent the victims in discrimination based on sexual orientation claims.

Protecting the Rights of Employees Who Have Been Harassed or Discriminated Against

Just because there are no state or federal laws that outright ban discrimination and harassment based on sexual orientation does not mean that a person is prohibited from making a discrimination claim. In addition to municipal ordinances and employment policies that offer protections, it may be possible to bring a claim under existing protections against discrimination and wrongful discharge.

Employment laws that are designed to protect workers from sex stereotyping also apply to employees who are gay, lesbian or bisexual. For example, an employer may not fire or otherwise discriminate against an employee who is viewed as not being "masculine" or "feminine" enough. Our attorneys will thoroughly review your claim to help you determine whether you may have a strong discrimination case.
