Protection against workplace discrimination for LGBT workers?

It is illegal for employers to discriminate or harass workers on the basis of certain factors, such as gender, ethnic origin or religious beliefs. These protections do not extend to LGBT employees, some of whom may still face the threat of losing their jobs as a result of their sexual orientation or preference. However, this could change soon in Florida as many people are speaking out about the need to protect these individuals from workplace discrimination.

Workplace discrimination reporting mishandled by Google

Google is one the most successful and largest tech companies in the world. It is a leader in its field and industry, and it should be a leader in the way it treats its workers, but unfortunately, that may not the case. Some employees allege that the company mistreated them after they filed complaints of workplace discrimination and harassment. If this is true, it is unacceptable.

Florida McDonald’s owner sued over religious discrimination

Believe it or not, but McDonald’s is one of the world’s largest employers with nearly two million people working to supply hamburgers, fries, chicken nuggets and more to a fast-food-hungry planet. The chain caters to all kinds of people in its more than 37,000 restaurants located in more than 100 countries.

More than half of LGBTQ workers have faced or seen discrimination at work

As part of the year-long observance of the fiftieth anniversary of the Stonewall riots, Glassdoor conducted a 2019 LGBTQ Workplace Survey. The website asked more than 6,000 employees about the on-the-job treatment of LGBTQ workers.

Working toward LGBT anti-discrimination protections nationwide

Despite the thriving LGBT community in South Florida, the state as a whole still lacks important protections for LGBT individuals against discrimination in employment, housing and public accommodations. Same-sex marriage was only legalized in Florida due to a 2015 U.S. Supreme Court ruling. And if anti-discrimination protections are to be implemented statewide, it may again be due to federal intervention.

Stroke victim alleges age and disability workplace discrimination

Workers in Florida and elsewhere become more vulnerable as they age. It is not uncommon for companies to get rid of older employees, only to replace them with younger, less-experienced personnel. The cost of younger staff is lower and may benefit the company, but they lack the experience of older workers. Workplace discrimination that is based on age, disability, race, religion and gender is prohibited under federal and state law.

School administrator files employment discrimination lawsuit

Florida employees have the right to receive reasonable accommodations when they get older and start developing associated medical conditions. Unfortunately, this is often not the case, and instead, workers are sometimes mocked and pressured to retire. A high school in another state is currently facing an employment discrimination lawsuit that was filed by a man who had an administrative position before he developed a medical disability.

Workplace discrimination often well disguised and subtle

Employers in Florida who are inclined to discriminate against some employees typically do so in subtle ways. It is not uncommon for workers to sense an atmosphere of discrimination but then tell themselves that they are oversensitive or paranoid. The fear of losing a job often prevents victims of workplace discrimination from reporting their suspicions.

Workplace discrimination claimed by pregnant hospital worker

Workers in Florida and elsewhere are protected by various laws, one of which is the Americans with Disabilities Act. An ex-employee of a hospital in another state is accusing her former employers of violating this law. She has recently filed a federal lawsuit alleging workplace discrimination. According to the lawsuit, the woman was employed as an admissions representative by the defendant and had been working for the company for 18 years.
