Federal Law Prohibiting Employment Discrimination on the Basis of Sexual Orientation

Your employer can't discriminate against you because of your gender, your race, your religious beliefs, your age, or a disability, but no federal law protects you if you're gay, lesbian or bisexual – at least not if you work for a private employer. You're only protected if you work for the federal government.

Law on Employment Contracts

An employment contract is a special type of contract that is generally governed by basic contract law with only a few nuances. Essentially, an employment contract is signed between an employee and an employer. The contract details the work to be performed by the employee, the duties to which the employee is responsible, and the compensation and duties owed to the employee by the employer. So long as no defenses to the contract exist, the contract will generally be upheld in a court of law. Usually, unless the contract states otherwise, an employment contract requires the employer to have "cause" to fire an employee. In other words, an employment contract generally does not exist between "at-will" employees and employers.
