Minnesota Sexual Orientation Discrimination Attorney

Sexual Orientation Discrimination

An employee who has a different sexual orientation, or who is seen as belonging to a group with different sexual orientations other than typical heterosexual preferences is protected against workplace harassment and unfair treatment. These protected groups include gay, bi-sexual, or lesbian.

Minnesota has state laws protecting employees from sexual orientation discrimination by their employers or fellow workers. Some religious and private organizations are exempt from these protections, such as the Boy Scouts.

The law firm of Tarshish Cody PLC will strongly pursue your legal rights in court and represent any one targeted by sexual discrimination at work. Call our attorneys at 952-361-5556 to discuss details of your specific case. Here are some examples of illegal workplace practices:

  • An employee who is denied employment or promotion, or is terminated because the employee is thought to be bi-sexual, lesbian, gay or even heterosexual.
  • An employee who is denied health insurance, or benefits provided to other employees on the basis of sexual orientation or identification.
  • An employee who is harassed, verbally mistreated, etc. due to a perceived sexual orientation, including gay, lesbian, bi-sexual, or even heterosexual.
