Sexual orientation discrimination typically involves disparate treatment of an employee at least in part because of their sexual orientation. A typical example may include enforcing gender stereotypes as a de facto basis for career advancement.
Under the California Fair Employment and Housing Act, employers may not discriminate against any person because of his or her sexual orientation, which means heterosexuality, homosexuality or bisexuality. In addition, California law prohibits discrimination on the basis of “sex,” which is defined to include transsexuals.
