LGBTQ Employment Discrimination

Under state law, Michigan does not forbid employers from discriminating against employees and job candidates on the basis of sexual orientation. Michigan's Elliot-Larsen Civil Rights Act protects many employees from employment discrimination, but not those who are discriminated against because the employer believes they are lesbian, gay, bisexual or transgender (LGBTQ).

Although the LGBTQ community does not have statewide protection against employment discrimination, certain Michigan communities have local laws that may prohibit discriminatory practices.

At Schwartz Law Firm, we vigilantly watch for opportunities to help LGBTQ people who suffer employment discrimination. Even when - or if - Michigan enacts statewide legislation protecting against LGBTQ employment discrimination, we understand that some employers will continue with discriminatory practices.
