Lesbian, gay, straight, bisexual and transgender employees, sadly, face discrimination and harassment in the workplace even though there are state and federal laws against it.
Harassment and discrimination can take various forms in the workplace — sexual orientation discrimination may be that you were terminated, demoted or refused a promotion. A hostile workplace or an employer's refusal to hire you on the basis of heterosexuality or homosexuality is also illegal.
