Protection Against Sexual Orientation Discrimination
19 states have passed legislation preventing sexual orientation discrimination in government and private sector jobs. Unfortunately Arizona is not one of those states. There is hope, however.
Tempe became the first Arizona city to ban workplace sexual orientation discrimination in 2014, meaning Tempe employees have legal protections from sexual orientation discrimination.
If you have been discriminated against because of your sexual orientation or gender identity, talk to an Arizona employment lawyer who will ensure your rights are protected.
