What is Homosexual Discrimination

Workplace discrimination based on sexual orientation and gender identity and expression occurs with no legal remedy. In 34 states, it is legal to fire someone based on their sexual orientation. In 44 states, it is legal to do so based on gender identity. (State courts, commissions or agencies have interpreted the existing state law to include some protection against transgender individuals in Connecticut, Florida, Hawaii, Illinois, Massachusetts, New Jersey, and New York.) Many employers have addressed this inequality by implementing policies to protect GLBT workers from discrimination.

 

Discrimination does not stop when it comes to employee benefits. While most employers that offer benefits such as health insurance and dental care, also make those benefits available to their employees’ spouses and legal dependents, the idea of extending them to employees’ domestic partners is a newer concept. The good news is an increasing number of employers have decided to do so.

What does the law say about homosexual discrimination?

It is generally against the law in NSW to treat you unfairly or harass you because:

  • you are gay or lesbian;
  • someone thinks you are gay or lesbian; or
  • because you have a relative, friend, associate or work colleague who is gay or lesbian, or someone thinks they are gay or lesbian.

 

Indirect homosexual discrimination is also against the law. This occurs when there is a rule or requirement that disadvantages gay men or lesbians more than heterosexuals – unless it can be shown that the rule or requirement is ‘reasonable in all the circumstances’.

 

For example, it could be indirect discrimination for a school to insist that students bring partners of the opposite sex to a school dance, because heterosexual students would be able to bring their boyfriends or girlfriends, but homosexual students would not.
