EEOC allows workplace discrimination lawsuits for LGBTQ people

There is greater attention being paid to various forms of harassment that employees are confronted with in Detroit and across the country.

The Equal Employment Opportunity Commission (EEOC) has begun filing lawsuits because people in the LGBTQ community are facing harassment and discrimination.

Employee rights can be violated in a myriad of ways for workers in Michigan. While many forms of harassment and discrimination are well-known and blatantly against the law, there are others that are only recently being legislated against with accompanying legal filings to protect and compensate those whose rights have been violated. Discrimination against workers because of their sexual orientation is now sparking lawsuits as the Equal Employment Opportunity Commission (EEOC) has argued that federal law against sexual discrimination also protects workers based on their sexual orientation.
