San Francisco Gay, Lesbian, Bisexual & Transgender Discrimination Lawyers
We help put the ‘fair’ back in ‘fair fight’
There are a variety of civil rights and equal protection laws in the U.S. that promote fair treatment and equal opportunity for every citizen, regardless of gender, race, age or disability. More than most other states, California has expanded upon those laws to include sexual orientation and gender identity.
While most of us are familiar with the EEOC (Equal Employment Opportunity Commission) and employment non-discrimination, there are other federal, state, and local laws that you may not have heard of but which you can use to challenge discrimination in employment, housing or services. There are other laws to address violence toward lesbian, gay, bisexual, and transgender people.
These LGBT laws and California-specific employment laws include:
- Letter to LDA
- Letter to LPGA
- LGBT Athletes
- LGBT Children’s Rights
- LGBT Consumer Rights
- LGBT Couple’s Rights
- LGBT Elder’s Rights
- LGBT Employee’s Rights
- LGBT Immigrants
- LGBT Parent’s Rights
- LGBT Renter’s and Homebuyer’s
A Law Is Only Effective if Enforced
If you have been the object of discrimination, the fact that a law exists to protect you is only the beginning. You must be vigilant about protecting your rights both in the places where they have been violated and in court.
