Fighting LGBTQ Discrimination in New York, New Jersey, and Connecticut

Though the New York legislature banned discrimination in the workplace based on sexual orientation in 2002, there are still many employers across the five boroughs who treat employees or potential workers differently because they are gay, lesbian, bisexual, or transgender.
