Do I have protection under the law against discrimination?

In 1991, Connecticut became one of the first states to pass an anti-discrimination law on the basis of sexual orientation. This law is applicable in numerous areas, including employment, housing, public accommodations, and credit. Furthermore, in 2011 the state's governor legalized an act to uniquely protects transgender individuals.

Under this law, employers are banned from the following based on sexual orientation:

  • Firing
  • Hiring
  • Failing to promote
  • Intentionally demoting
  • Unnecessary disciplinary action
  • Harassment

Such discrimination is also viewed as a violation of sex and gender discrimination laws. If you have experienced unfair treatment in your workplace and you suspect it is because of your real or perceived sexual orientation, it is important that you take action right away. Connecticut requires complaints of discrimination to be filed within 180 days of when the act occurred. A complaint that is deemed valid may allow you to get hired, reinstated, or receive back pay, depending on the initial discriminatory act.
