Information about Sexual Orientation Discrimination provided by job and employee rights advocacy organization Workplace Fairness. 2. Which federal law covers sexual orientation discrimination ? 3. Are there any other laws which make it illegal to discriminate on the basis of sexual orientation ?

Sexual orientation discrimination includes being treated differently or harassed because of your real or perceived sexual orientation —whether gay, lesbian, bisexual, or heterosexual. This type of discrimination may be illegal in your workplace, depending on where you work.

“The court’s ruling is loud and clear,” he said. “The Constitution prohibits schools from discriminating against LGBT folks.”

Bailey, who received exemplary reviews and was twice voted teacher of the year at the elementary school, was put on paid administrative leave for about eight months in 2017-18 after a parent complained that she was “promoting the ‘homosexual agenda’” to students at Charlotte Anderson Elementary School in Arlington.

At issue was a “Get to Know Your Teacher” slide show from 2017 where Bailey showed pictures to her students, including one of her then-fiancee, now wife, Julie Vasquez. She also showed pictures of her dog, friends and parents.

Bailey’s supporters repeatedly asked the Mansfield school district to let her return to her students at Charlotte Anderson. And advocates of LGBT rights asked the school board to rework its anti-discrimination and anti-bullying policies by adding several terms: “sexual orientation, gender identity and gender expression.”

Sexual Orientation Discrimination is illegal! If you have been discriminated against due to your sexual orientation call Discrimination based on sexual orientation may seem very clear to victims, but strong proof must be provided to prevail in a sexual orientation discrimination lawsuit .

The Texas teacher who was suspended after speaking about her sexual orientation to her students is now suing the school district for discrimination . The lawsuit , which was filed on Tuesday, states that an official from the school told her she "can't promote your lifestyle in the classroom."

“I am so appreciative of the support from the students, parents, faculty and community,” Bailey said. “They stood up and spoke for me when I was silenced and they gave me the courage to stand up for myself and my family.”

After Bailey asked school leaders to create stronger protections for LGBT students and employees, she was put on paid administrative leave. She also was accused of trying to indoctrinate youths.

Eventually the district renewed Bailey’s teaching contract, but moved her from an elementary school to Lake Ridge High School, where she still teaches art.

“While on administrative leave, Bailey’s career was damaged by limiting her advancement, eligibility for promotions, and pay raises,” the lawsuit stated.

Beyond that, Bailey claimed Mansfield school officials “imposed a stigma on her, making it more difficult to obtain future employment in other school districts, especially as an elementary school teacher.”

Bailey’s lawsuit was filed last year and the school district filed a motion to dismiss it.

This new ruling was in response to the Mansfield school district’s request. The superintendent may appeal the ruling; the school district may not.

“There is no job-related justification for placing Bailey on an eight-month administrative leave and then not allowing her to return as an elementary school teacher at Charlotte Anderson Elementary School,” the ruling stated.

“Further, the court concludes that Mansfield I.S.D. has failed to argue persuasively how Bailey’s sexual orientation bears any rational relationship to her competency as an elementary school teacher, or her job performance as an elementary school teacher.”
