Sex Orientation Discrimination
California sexual orientation discrimination protects heterosexuals, homosexuals, bisexuals, transgender persons, and transsexuals from sexual orientation discrimination. For example, an employee would have suffered sexual orientation discrimination if derogatory remarks are made about the individual being homosexual.
The law against sexual orientation discrimination is very new, so it is not clear what damages can be received in court. However, it appears that employees can recover their lost wages and other benefits, emotional distress damages, and punitive damages. It is not at all clear whether or not they may recover attorneys fees and costs. For more information,
