Discrimination because of sexual orientation can happen because of your actual sexual orientation, no matter what it is, or because of your perceived sexual orientation. Similarly, gender discrimination can happen because of your gender, whether your identity is male, female, transgender, genderqueer, or anything else, or can happen just because the way you look or act doesn't match the way someone else thinks someone of your gender should.
Perceived sexual orientation discrimination, sexual orientation discrimination, and gender identity discrimination are each types of gender discrimination and are illegal in many places of work. Some local ordinances make sexual orientation and gender discrimination illegal (e.g., in unincorporated King County, or Seattle city limits). Other times sexual orientation or gender identity harassment or discrimination looks like sex role stereotyping, and can be the basis of a suit under federal or Washington State gender discrimination laws. If you have suffered from a hostile work environment or have been harassed because of your sexual orientation or gender (or perceived orientation or gender ), contact a Seattle LGBT discrimination lawyer at Teller & Associates immediately.
Many people who are victims of discrimination or harassment because of their gender or sexual orientation in the workplace are also discriminated against in other ways, including sexual harassment and gender discrimination.
