It is against both California and federal law to discriminate against someone in the workplace because he or she is lesbian, gay, bisexual or transgender. California's Fair Employment and Housing Act (FEHA) specifically lists "sexual orientation" as a protected class, making LGBT harassment strictly illegal.
Your Legal Rights — Sexual Orientation Discrimination
A wide variety of actions and inactions can be considered workplace discrimination and harassment under the FEHA, including:
Hiring, firing, layoff and demotion decisions based on sexual orientation
Intimidation and other actions that constitute a hostile work environment
Harassment for acting "unmasculine" or "unfeminine"
Retaliation for asserting your legal rights
Reducing or refusing benefits based on sexual orientation
Failing to pay equal compensation due to sexual orientation
