LGBT and Transgender Orientation Discrimination

San Francisco, San Jose Lesbian, Gay, Bisexual and Transgender Discrimination Attorney

LGBT persons in our community have long endured sexual orientation discrimination and harassment in their personal and professional lives. When you encounter harassment or discrimination of any kind in the workplace, you need an experienced, dedicated employment lawyer on your side to protect your rights.

At the Law Offices of Rutger Heymann, in San Jose, California, I represent lesbian, gay, bisexual and transgender clients who feel they have been wronged by their employer or have a sexual orientation discrimination claim. If you suspect that you have been terminated or laid off because of your sexual orientation, or because your employer believes you are gay, lesbian, bisexual or transgendered, you may have a valid claim against them.

Committed to the Rights of the Employee

As an California laywer who only represents employees, I am committed to ensuring that your civil rights are protected in the workplace. I understand the importance of LGBT rights in the modern workplace, and work to ensure that California’s employment environments are free from sexual orientation discrimination and workplace harassment based upon sexual orientation.

If you have been discriminated or harassed in the workplace because of your sexual orientation, whether you are homosexual or heterosexual, call a Bay area sexual orientation discrimination attorney and consider filing a sexual orientation discrimination charge or lawsuit against your employer. You may be able to recover monetary compensation for emotional distress, loss of wages, and other sexual orientation discrimination related claims.

Workplace Retaliation - Get Compensation for Unlawful Acts

If you were fired or demoted or harassed because you notified your employer about a hostile work environment or sexual abuse on the basis of sexual orientation, you may be able to sue your employer.

However, there is a statute of limitations of when you can file for a gay, lesbian, bisexual or transgender workplace discrimination case, so it is vital to your potential case that if you feel that you have been discriminated against to contact an employment law attorney immediately.
