Fighting For LGBTQ Rights In The Workplace
Across the country, great strides have been made in advancing civil rights for the LGBTQ community. In Kentucky, however, there’s still much that needs to be done to protect LGBTQ employees from workplace harassment and discrimination.
If you believe that you have suffered sex discrimination at your workplace due to your gender identity or your sexual orientation, contact our team at Sam Nicholson Law Office, PLLC. Our attorney, Sam Nicholson, has years of experience with a variety of employment law matters, including discrimination, harassment and retaliation. As your advocate, Mr. Nicholson will explore all legal avenues available to right the wrongs you have faced at work.
A Patchwork Of Protections Throughout Kentucky
Unlike other states, Kentucky does not have a state-wide ban on LGBTQ sex discrimination in private sector workplaces. Public sector employees are protected against sexual discrimination. A few cities, including Louisville, and a select group of private employers have enacted nondiscrimination ordinances that prohibit gender identity or sexual identity discrimination.
The patchwork of protections, while helpful, can make it difficult to know what your legal options are when you are facing discrimination at work. Turn to us for counsel. Because his primary focus is employment law, Sam Nicholson remains current on the ever-shifting local ordinances that may affect your case.

When you consult with lawyer Nicholson, he will give you the time you need to tell your story. He will give you a candid evaluation of your claim and your possible outcomes. It is important to us that you know the challenges that you may face before you move forward.
