There is currently no federal law in the United States that protects lesbian, gay, bisexual and transgender people from being fired because of their sexual orientation or gender.

Chef fired while out under Family and Medical Leave Act

Most people in Manhattan have paid sick time to care for themselves, their spouses or their children, but when the sick time an employer gives is not enough, many people can turn to the Family and Medical Leave Act.

During that time, an employee cannot be fired, nor can an employer use the employee's leave against him or her after his or her return.

Workplace discrimination is more than just a supervisor creating a hostile work environment or refusing to promote someone because he or she falls into a protected category. It is more than just treating some people differently because of their religion, national origin or race. Workplace discrimination can also manifest as wrongful termination, in which an employer fires an employee because of his or her membership in a protected category or in retaliation for exercising his or her employee rights.
