Victims of Sex Discrimination
Have you transitioned or are in the process of transitioning and fear that you might lose your job because of it? Have you been discriminated against by your employer because of your sexual orientation or identity?
According to the June 15, 2020 Supreme Court ruling Bostock vs. Clayton County, it has been ruled that to deny an individual the right to work based on their sexual orientation or gender is illegal. Additionally, the court’s majority opinion on the matter indicates that no matter your sex or gender, you are guaranteed the opportunity to work. NO employer can discriminate because of sexual orientation, and if you feel as if you are being discriminated against, the attorneys of Rastegar Law Group are here to help.

Furthermore, it is unlawful for an employer:
- To fail or refuse to hire or discharge or discriminate against an individual solely because of their sex or gender.
- To limit, segregate, or classify their employees or applicants for employment that would deprive any individual of employment opportunities or negatively affect their status as an employee because of their sex or gender.
According to the California Fair Employment and Housing Act, it is illegal for businesses to discriminate because of genfer or sex while engaging in the following practices:
- Applications, screening, and interviews
- Hiring, transferring, promoting, terminating, or separating employees
- Working conditions, including compensation
- Participation in a training or apprenticeship program, employee organization or union
This law applies to public and private employers, organizations, and agencies.
