Successfully Defending Clients Against Homophobia

While everyone deserves equal treatment in the workplace, discrimination is still a reality for many American workers. Our client, Dan Wreiden, was one such worker. As a city employee, he did the important job of reviewing applications from people who want to build or renovate properties in historic districts. He was even promoted to supervisor. Like all employees, Dan deserved respect. But after refusing to support a certain project that his boss wanted him to promote, things changed.

Dan says his boss used derogatory language and said homophobic things about him. Finally, after years of good work for the city, Dan was fired. He knew he hadn’t been treated fairly, and he wanted to go back to the work he loved.

Fortunately, he went to O’Connor, Parsons, Lane & Noble. We worked with Dan to file a suit against the city. Ultimately, he won a $300,000 payment — and best of all, he got his job back.

You Have the Right to Work Free From Homophobia

If you are LGBTQ, or if your employer suspects that you are, you have the right to be treated equally in the workplace. In many states, including New York and New Jersey, anti-LGBTQ discrimination is illegal.

If your colleagues or supervisors have harassed, belittled, or threatened you because of your sexual orientation or gender identity, you do not have to suffer in silence. Whether it’s homophobic comments at work or being denied a promotion due to your sexual orientation, you do not deserve to be mistreated.

An experienced attorney can help you fight for the respect you deserve. You may even be entitled to a settlement like Dan’s. But the amount of money you win will depend on the skill and expertise of your lawyer.
