New Jersey Sexual Orientation Harassment Lawyers
As our culture progresses, even the most bigoted people can't get away with racist and sexual statements before the public any more without reproach, but gay, lesbian, and, especially, transgendered people, are still, in the view of many bigoted people, legitimate targets.
And among that group, trans people are the most vulnerable, because it takes such courage, and such doing, to transition from one gender to another. This process can alienate friends and family, can wreak emotional and financial havoc on one's life, and can be the most frightening, even if it's the most necessary, thing a trans person has done.
It shouldn't also result in discrimination or harassment on the job or in public places, such as schools. Gender identity and expression are specifically protected under New Jersey's Law Against Discrimination, and Costello & Mains attorneys fight for the rights of trans workers and students every day.
If you feel you or your trans loved one has suffered harassment or discrimination at work or at school, or anywhere else, simply because he or she i s, or is perceived to be, a trans person, contact Costello & Mains. We're here for you.
