Sexual Orientation Discrimination Attorney in New York

In New York, it is unlawful to discriminate against a person on the basis of sexual orientation. Despite this, LBGT employees working in New York City may still deal with discrimination in the workplace. If you believe you’ve been subjected to sexual orientation discrimination at your job, the Law Offices of Fausto E. Zapata, Jr. is here to help you hold your employer accountable.

New York Laws Protect You Against Sexual Orientation Discrimination

Fortunately for New York residents, both state and local human rights laws prohibit sexual orientation discrimination and harassment in the workplace. LGBT workers in New York who’ve been subjected to discrimination on the job have recourse. The New York State Human Rights Law and the New York City Human Rights Law prohibit sexual orientation discrimination. Therefore employers may not:

  • Refuse to hire based on sexual orientation
  • Terminate employees because of their sexual orientation.
  • Offer substandard terms and conditions of employment because of sexual orientation
  • Harass, mock, or badger employees because of their sexual orientation

These discrimination laws also require employers to remedy a hostile work environment. Further, employers can be held liable for discrimination and harassment by supervisors, and in some cases, lower level employees—if there is evidence that the employer didn’t address the issue.
