Sexual minorities still come under fire from those who fear what is different, or what is in themselves, or close to them. In your personal life, you’ve got the courage to deal with those who won’t respect you for who you are. In the workplace and in school, you can’t get away so easily.
That’s why the employment rights lawyers at Costello & Mains are so vocal about equal rights for LGBT and GLBT people in the workplace and in schools. We fight for workers and students who are subjected to a hostile, intimidating and abusive environment simply because they are, or are perceived to be, gay, lesbian, transgender or bisexual. Even though federal law doesn’t offer you protection, in New Jersey, you have it under the New Jersey Law Against Discrimination.
You should not have to endure workplace harassment relating to your sexual orientation or identity. Threats, abuse, intimidation and name calling are just a few of the ways in which GLBT and LGBT people are subjected to hostile working and educational environments.
The employment, school and civil rights attorneys at the New Jersey civil rights law firm of Costello & Mains have brought claims throughout the state of New Jersey to protect LGBT and GLBT workers and students from hostile, intimidating and abusive working environments for nearly 30 years.
