Milwaukee Sexual Orientation Discrimination Attorney

Sexual Orientation  Discrimination Lawyers

Sexual orientation discrimination cases are complex. Employers who engage in sexual orientation discrimination often attempt to mask their illegal conduct by falsely claiming legitimate reasons for employment decisions. When the discrimination is perpetrated by a manager, the company as a whole often rallies around the discriminating manager. Once an employee asserts a sexual orientation discrimination claim, many employers have the recourses to hire large corporate law firms to defend their actions. Carroll Law Firm, SC focuses its entire legal practice on representing employees, professionals and executives. Loyalties will never be divided because the firm does not represent employers.

Attorney Douglas J. Carroll, Jr., the founder and managing attorney at Carroll Law Firm, SC has the knowledge and experience to peel back the layers of management-speak and get at the truth. He has the skill and tenacity to effectively fight for justice regardless of the size and recourses of the employer or the law firm they hire.

Sexual Orientation Discrimination Is Illegal in Wisconsin

In 1982 Wisconsin became the first state in the country to ban employment discrimination on the basis of sexual orientation in both the public and private sector. There is currently no federal law expressly prohibiting sexual orientation or gender identity discrimination in the private sector. However, there have been some cases where sexual orientation and gender identity discrimination have been considered gender discrimination under theories that the discrimination was because the employee did not conform to traditional gender roles.

What is Sexual Orientation Discrimination

Sexual Orientation discrimination occurs when an employer treats an applicant for employment or an employee differently than similarly situated heterosexual employees with respect to the terms, conditions and privileges of employment including hiring, discharge, promotion, compensation, discipline, layoffs, job assignments, benefits and training.

Sexual Orientation Harassment

The law also protects employees from workplace harassment based upon their sexual orientation.

Be Vigilant for Retaliation

At Carroll Law Firm. SC, we believe it is always best practice to contact us immediately if you believe you are the victim of sexual orientation discrimination in employment because knowing your employment rights is critical to protecting yourself and your career.

However, if you exercise your right to complain about sexual orientation discrimination or report discriminatory treatment before contacting an attorney, be vigilant for retaliation.

Your employer may not retaliate against you for reporting, opposing or complaining about discrimination in the workplace. Retaliation can include but is not limited to enforcing rules more strictly, judging performance more critically and altering terms, conditions or privileges of employment such as working hours, wages, work assignments, etc.
