Attacking Sexual Orientation Discrimination

Skilled New Jersey employment discrimination attorneys

When it comes to civil rights for lesbian, gay, bisexual and transgender individuals, New York and New Jersey have made significant strides. New Jersey recognizes civil unions; in New York same-sex marriage became legal in 2011. Both states have laws against sexual orientation discrimination in an employment context. However, all this does not mean that employers never discriminate on the basis of sexual orientation.

If you have encountered discrimination based on sexual orientation, the law offices of Deutsch Atkins, P.C. can help. We have extensive experience handling a wide range of employment discrimination matters and have obtained millions of dollars in compensation for thousands of clients. Our practice has had particular success protecting the rights of senior executives, management and corporate officers.

Effectively protecting LGBT employee rights

Our founding partners have more than 50 years of combined experience litigating cases protecting the rights of employees who have suffered discrimination, harassment or wrongful termination. We understand the importance of protecting and enforcing the rights of gay and lesbian employees, who because of their sexual orientation often face unfair treatment in:

  • Hiring
  • Layoffs and firings
  • Compensation
  • Job assignments and job training
  • Promotions
  • Benefits

We work to ensure that employers in New York and New Jersey face the consequences for failing to comply with the antidiscrimination laws and that you receive full compensation for the effects of this discrimination.

Protection from wrongful termination

We represent clients who have faced wrongful termination or constructive discharge due to their sexual orientation and those who have been unable to continue working because a hostile environment made work intolerable. In such cases, the loss of employment likely had significant financial consequences for the employee, in addition to traumatic psychological consequences. We work to ensure that you are fairly compensated for this difficult time.
