Sexual Orientation discrimination is very serious and very wrong. Employees often ask, what is sexual orientation or LGBTQ discrimination, what are examples of sexual orientation or LGBTQ discrimination, and what can I do to stop it?
As an Oregon employee, you have the right to a work environment free from sexual orientation and LGBTQ discrimination. This means, you have the right never to be discriminated against. Oregon law says sexual orientation or LGBTQ discrimination is unfair treatment against someone because of their sexual orientation. This means an employer can never consider sexual orientation in how the employer treats an employee. Sexual orientation discrimination takes many forms. For example, sexual orientation can never be a factor in:
- Job location, or
These are common examples of sexual orientation discrimination. But, these are not the only examples of sexual orientation discrimination. Sometimes sexual orientation harassment also occurs at the same time as sexual orientation discrimination.
