Both yes and no. Check this link for further explanation. It was updated in 2014. So who knows for sure now. https://www.snopes.com/politics/sexuality/firedforbeinggay.asp

Why hire you in the first place just to fire you?

Hi Andrew, Your question is an interesting one and NO, an employee cannot be legally fired for being gay. However, I see the only time that would be relevant is if an employee is hired as a "sex worker" and expected to have sexual relations with the opposite sex. Everyone knows that is illegal in this country, so no one can legally be fired for being gay.

Employers are not allowed to discriminate based on a number of things and this include sex, sexual orientation, sexual preference, national origin, disability, race and etc. I don't believe religious institutions who are against alternative lifestyles can get away with firing someone based on that. Consult an attorney for more on that. For workplace harassment, check out your employee handbook and get in touch with HR for help.

Check out, https://www.eeoc.gov/laws/types/ for more information on different types of discrimination that is not allowed.

The fact that U hv to ask this question tells me perhaps U shld hv been let go. In addition for UR vocabulary & spelling to be very poor writing only a few words may also be wny U were let go.

Legally, NO! Buts its there discretion. However, in some states they can for you at will for just about any reason and you can't do anything about it! If you are in LA, ca, look into working for LAYN( los Angeles youth network). They hire transgenders, bisexuals, gays , etc...Blessings!
