Since Georgia’s civil rights law contains no protections against discrimination based on sexual preference, the city of Atlanta has adopted an ordinance to address the issue.

In Atlanta, employees can sue their employer in municipal court if they believe they suffered discrimination because of their sexual orientation. The court can fine employers up to $1,000.
