A victim of sexual harassment has hiredAxisto prosecute the victim’s claims against a notable L.A. area business.   Sexual orientation discrimination is illegal and prohibited by both California and federal laws. The California Fair Employment and Housing Act makes it unlawful for any employer with over 5 employees to discriminate against an employee based on an unlawful reason, such as race, national origin, ethnicity, gender, sexual orientation, religion, language, or any other protected reason. California law is broader than federal law on this point, as there is no law under Title VII that provides protection for discrimination based on the actual or perceived sexual orientation of employees. Individuals who succeed in bringing religious discrimination claims are entitled to back-pay, compensatory damages, and attorneys’ fees.
