Protecting Workers From Discrimination and Harassment
Discrimination based on sexual orientation can take many forms, from failure to promote to wrongful termination. Harassment is different from discrimination in that it involves offensive comments or touching. Both types of conduct are illegal in the workplace under the California Fair Employment and Housing Act (FEHA). Male on male conduct can be sexual harassment. So can female on female.
Discrimination and harassment can work both ways. If your boss is gay or lesbian and harasses you because you are straight, you may have a claim against your employer. Likewise, employees who want to turn you straight may be liable for sexual harassment orientation.
You do not have to put up with harassment or discrimination in the workplace. Your employer has a duty to investigate sexual orientation harassment and discrimination claims and could be found liable if it fails to do so. It is also illegal for your employer to retaliate against you for reporting harassment or discrimination, or for supporting another's claim.
