Homophobic Harrassment in the Workplace

Do I have to put up with homophobic harassment?

    No- whether you identify as gay or not.  Connecticut state law expressly forbids discrimination on the basis of sexual orientation, and a federal court in Iowa recently held that anti-gay harassment could violate Title VII of the Civil Rights Act of 1964 as well.  In this case, the court held that anti-gay graffiti on the plaintiff’s car, being asked whether he had AIDS, and offensive touching could, if proved, violate federal law.

I worked for a retailer and was a Plaintiff in a class action for unpaid overtime wages. Hayber, McKenna & Dinsmore did an amazing job of getting our unpaid overtime back to us. Every one at the firm that I dealt with through that process was wonderful to work with. I appreciate all they did for us more than you will ever know.
