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
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
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.
