Thank you for your question. I look forward to working with you to provide you the information you are seeking for educational purposes only.

GA law and federal law does not provide employment discrimination protection based on sexual orientation or transgender status I am afraid. The laws in GA are a bit antiquated as are the federal laws in this area of employment discrimination and have not added sexual orientation or transgender to their protected groups as of yet.
