Putting A Stop To LGBT And Same-Sex Harassment

Sexual harassment doesn't only happen between members of the opposite sex. Those in the Los Angeles LGBT community are far too aware of that. Men harass men, women harass women and LGBT workers are consistently harassed for their sexual orientation or gender identity in the workplace.

Caskey & Holzman takes a firm stance against same-sex and LGBT harassment. Located in Calabasas, we stand up for workers throughout the region, fighting for the safe work environment to which we are all entitled.

An Ally For California's LGBT Workers

The LGBT community consists of a wide range of individuals who have broad protections under California employment law. While these protections exist at the state level, workers still unfortunately experience situations such as:

  • Sexual orientation discrimination: When you are treated differently for being gay, bisexual or for having another sexual orientation, we want to make things right.
  • Gender identity discrimination: California is one of only a handful of states that prohibit workplace discrimination based on gender identity. If you believe you were not hired, did not receive a promotion, were punished or were terminated because of your gender identity, you may have grounds for compensation.
  • LGBT harassment: Discrimination is not the only issue for LGBT workers. Harassment takes many forms — inappropriate touches, comments, jokes and more. These could be sexual in nature, or potentially violent, either way causing you to feel unsafe and uneasy.
  • Retaliation and wrongful termination: When you report same-sex or LGBT harassment or discrimination to your boss or to HR, and are terminated shortly after, you likely have a retaliation claim against your employer.
