Los Angeles Gay/Lesbian Employee Discrimination Lawyer

California LGBT Employee Rights Attorney — National Practice

If you are gay or lesbian and have been a victim of discrimination, harassment or retaliation in the workplace, you want an experienced lawyer to protect your rights. State and federal laws provide safeguards against these types of acts. You want an attorney who knows the law and the process, who has successfully fought for others in similar circumstances.

At the Law Offices of Ronald P. Ackerman, I have focused my law career exclusively on employment law issues since opening my doors in 1992, representing workers throughout Southern California, Los Angeles and across the country. In nearly two decades in practice, I have handled hundreds of claims before a wide range of government agencies, from the Equal Employment Opportunity Commission (EEOC) to the Merit Systems Protection Board and the Office of Personnel Management. A Federal employee myself before becoming an attorney, I have a unique insight into the challenges workers face every day.

Representation of Gay and Lesbian Employees

I handle all matters related to wrongful conduct by employers based on an employee's sexual orientation, including:

  • Gay/lesbian discrimination — I will help you pursue compensation for losses resulting from unequal or unfair treatment based on your sexual orientation, including wrongful discharge, denial of promotion, demotions or undesirable work assignments.
  • Harassment of employees or co-workers based on sexual orientation — I will help you combat harassment in the workplace, from slurs, taunting and name calling to sexual harassment, including requests for sexual favors in exchange for job-related benefits, or the creation of a hostile environment based on sex.
  • Retaliatory acts based on sexual orientation — I will help you fight retaliation, whether in the form of wrongful termination or of undesirable treatment at work.
