Fighting Discrimination On The Basis Of Sexual Orientation
Sexual orientation discrimination involves treating an employee differently solely because of his or her sexual orientation, whether homosexual, heterosexual, bisexual, straight or other.
In particular, Hawaii laws prohibit discrimination against individuals based on sexual orientation, or perceived sexual orientation, in various aspects of the employment process, including but not limited to:
- Job raining
- Job assignments
- Other terms, conditions and privileges of employment
At the Law Office of David F. Simons, we have helped individuals in Honolulu and across Hawaii fight discrimination at work. Mr. Simons, a Harvard educated attorney, has represented employees against both large and small employers, and has done so for decades.
Standing Up For Employees
It is illegal for an employer to treat you differently because of your sexual orientation. That includes termination, harassment, denial of benefits or offensive jokes.
