Houston LGBTQ Discrimination Attorneys

Proudly Advocating for the Rights LGBTQ Individuals

Although our country has made great strides to combat workplace discrimination against members of the LGBTQ community, some employers continue to mistreat employees who don’t identify by traditional gender and sex norms. In fact, a 2017 study from Harvard revealed that 22% of LGBTQ people have encountered anti-LGBTQ discrimination at work, including being paid less than other works in similar roles and not being seriously considered for promotions. The same study showed that 20% of LGBTQ individuals reported discriminatory hiring practices used by employers.
