Real Estate Service Provides Solution to Discrimination Concerns Among LGBTQ Clientele

Press Release – updated: Jan 31, 2020 13:00 CST

PALM SPRINGS, Calif., January 31, 2020 (Newswire.com) – GayRealEstate.com, a service which connects buyers and sellers with compatible agents, found in a recent survey that many LGBTQ home buyers and sellers face discrimination among agents and other contacts in the real estate transaction process. In confluence with this information, the legal protections for LGBTQ homeowners vary by state and are not federally mandated. GayRealEstate.com continues to work toward parity for all people in the real estate transaction process.
LGBTQ people face discrimination in many areas of life. More than half of LGBTQ Americans say they have experienced violence, threats or harassment because of their sexuality or gender identity, according to an extensive poll.
In real estate, the Fair Housing Act prohibits discrimination in the sale, rental, financing of or other housing-related transactions based on race, color, national origin, religion, sex, family status or disability. But it does not protect people against discrimination based on sexual orientation or gender identity. Housing discrimination against lesbian, gay, bisexual, transgender and queer people takes a variety of forms, according to the Human Rights Campaign (HRC).
Many times couples are told they cannot put both partners’ names on a homeowner’s insurance policy, which is important to do if both partners share ownership of the home, according to HRC. Other couples are discriminated against when filing a claim, as some insurance companies attempt to refuse claims or cancel policies on the grounds that the owners are unrelated. These are just two examples of the ways LGBTQ people can face discrimination throughout a real estate transaction.
The GayRealEstate.com team has worked for over 25 years to identify the top LGBTQ/LGBTQ friendly real estate agents in each city, in every state across the country. Cultivating deep relationships and networks in each, to provide their clients the support and full representation they need to find ideal residency. The service GayRealEstate.com provides is one of many that LGBTQ individuals can use to bypass the potential for anxiety, discrimination and inequitable treatment.
GayRealEstate.com continually strives for the protection of all people, regardless of sexual orientation or gender identification, and will continue to advocate for the full and equal treatment of all individuals: in real estate markets and all areas of life.

California Civil Rights Law Group, a Team of San Francisco Bay Area Racial Discrimination and Harassment Lawyers, Announces Post on Equal Pay

Bay Area discrimination lawyers

The phrase ‘equal pay for equal work’ has come to be strongly associated with the male/female wage gap and our post explains the basics.

SAN FRANCISCO (PRWEB) January 30, 2020
California Civil Rights Law Group, a leading San Francisco Bay Area law firm focused on sexual harassment and discrimination law, is proud to announce a new post to its blog on “equal pay for equal work.” As Bay Area discrimination attorneys, the firm follows developments in the employment sphere. Many Bay Area workers, including those in key cities such as San Francisco, Oakland, and San Jose, confront discrimination at work and need to know their rights, including the right to reach out to an attorney for a confidential consultation on the facts and the law of their particular situation.
“The phrase ‘equal pay for equal work’ has come to be strongly associated with the male/female wage gap and our post explains the basics,” explained Larry Organ, principal attorney at the Bay Area-based law firm. “However, there are many types of discrimination at work not just in terms of wages but in other areas as well, and some types of discrimination are based on sex and not race. Any person experiencing discrimination on the job should reach out for a confidential consultation.”
Interested persons can view the blog post at https://www.civilrightsca.com/equal-pay/. Journalists, bloggers, and other media representatives who are looking to speak with an expert in California and federal discrimination law are encouraged to reach out to one of the law firm’s attorneys. They can provide interview opportunities on current day news and events. Secondarily, persons who may be experiencing racial discrimination are encouraged to read the updated informational page at https://www.civilrightsca.com/race-discrimination/. That page explains that although we have state and federal laws in place to protect people from race discrimination or sexual harassment, the color of a person’s skin can still affect their ability to get hired, earn a promotion, or receive other benefits of employment. Even in the San Francisco Bay Area, employers, managers and supervisors still discriminate based on race, believing that they can avoid punishment for violating civil rights laws.
A LAW FIRM THAT BLENDS THE INTERNET, TELEPHONE, AND FACE-TO-FACE
Here is background on this release. In today’s Internet age, persons often turn first to search engines like Google and then blogs to learn about important issues, including issues that may be highly sensitive such as potential sexual harassment or workplace discrimination. The “wage gap” is one such issue as is the concept of “equal pay for equal work.” While the blog is not in any way, shape, or form, legal advice, it can offer general information to the lay public and spur a social conversation. The next best step for any person experiencing discrimination is to reach out to an attorney for a consultation. Consultations are available over the phone or in person at the law firm’s offices in San Francisco, Oakland, or San Anselmo (Marin County) and are always strictly confidential.
