Prohibiting Sexual Orientation Discrimination Even though there is no law that directly prohibits sexual orientation discrimination, current discrimination laws may offer some protection. For example, an employer cannot use gender-based stereotypes to discriminate against employees. Under Title VII, it is unlawful for an employer to discriminate against a male employee for acting too feminine or a female employee of being too masculine.
