LGBTQ Discrimination

Fighting LGBTQ Workplace Discrimination

Discrimination in the workplace should be a thing of the past. But it is not. Many workers today continue to be discriminated against due to age, race, religion and disability. Another group that faces the same discrimination is the LGBTQ community due to their sexual orientation.

The Supreme Court has ruled that federal law prohibits discrimination against gay, lesbian and transgender individuals. Additionally, Maryland, Virginia, and District of Columbia have local laws that also prohibit discrimination against the LGBTQ community. The attorneys of Thatcher Law Firm in Greenbelt, Maryland, have the knowledge and fortitude to confront employers who discriminate based on sexual orientation.

Trial-Tested Attorneys On Your Side

Employers who discriminate must be held accountable. With decades of experience as a respected employment law firm, our attorneys are prepared to fight for you and secure any lost wages and compensatory damages for the emotional suffering you have endured.

Discrimination of any kind can happen in obvious and subtle ways. For the former, you can be fired and demoted. More subtle forms of discrimination are when a supervisor lowers your performance evaluation or when you receive a pay cut.

If you find yourself in this legal predicament, you need the legal guidance of compassionate, understanding, aggressive and trial-tested attorneys. We can help. Members of the LGBTQ community have legal protections when it comes to employment discrimination. Thatcher Law Firm closely monitors this evolving area of law. Virginia recently passed the Virginia Values Act that prohibits public and private sector employment discrimination on the basis of sexual orientation or gender identity.
