Legal Help For Finding Freedom From Discrimination At Work And Your Community
When you identify as lesbian, gay, bisexual, transgender, queer/questioning and/or nonbinary (LGBTQ+), you have a right to choose your pronouns, mannerisms and fashion choices. You can assert your rights if you believe gender-based harassment is afoot at your job.
Discrimination on the basis of your gender expression, social identity or sexual orientation is illegal. Do you identify as LGBTQ+ or gender fluid? State and federal laws protect your right to be free of workplace discrimination. Stereotypical expectations of your intrinsic identity, behaviors, and appearance can be harmful to your well-being.
Attorney Amy L. Wells offers seasoned assistance for the LGBTQ+ community to fight discrimination and gender expression in their workplace. She has the experience, focus and drive to seek and demand justice when you or a loved one has been experiencing discrimination at work, school and other public spaces.
Signs of discriminatory practices:
- Refusal of employee benefits
- Denial of access to other medical care based on your sexual orientation or transgender status
- Denial of fertility coverage
- Verbal or physical abuse
- Refusal to issue a marriage license to a same-sex couple
- Housing discrimination
- Employment discrimination
- Wrongful termination
If you believe your employer or anyone else is treating you unfairly based on your gender expression or sexual orientation, you may file a complaint with the Illinois Department of Human Rights (IDHR), as well as with the U.S. Equal Employment Opportunity Commission (EEOC).
