					How a Gay Atlanta Attorney can help you
   and Your Partner Secure Benefits
http://www.knclawfirm.com/lgbt/ One of the biggest issues
facing gay, lesbian and transgender couples is benefits at
work. Unlike other couples these people are often unable to
take advantage of the normal benefits other workers take for
granted. This includes retirement accounts, health insurance
and more. In many cases you will need to hire an experienced
attorney in Atlanta to help you get what you should be
entitled to.

Contrary to popular belief unions, the government and
politicians are not always willing to fight for LGBT rights at
work or defend them. In many cases, judges and the courts
are actually hostile to these rights. Many employers think
they can get away with denying basic benefits to gays, lesbian
and transgender people because they think nobody will fight
back.

More than Just Health Insurance is at Stake

These rights and benefits involve far more than health
insurance. It can sometimes be a fight just to get a partner
listed as a beneficiary on a life insurance policy, an Individual
Retirement Account or a pension. Sometimes partners are not
allowed to do things like contribute to retirement accounts
when husbands and wives are.

It can also be hard or impossible to get time off to care to care
for a sick partner even if the time is allowed in company
policy. That is the kind of right that you will need to fight for.
That is why it is always critical that you contact an
experienced Atlanta LGBT attorney when you encounter
such discrimination. Companies may not pay attention to
individual workers they will definitely pay attention to a
lawyer, especially one who has a track record of beating them
in court. Sometimes all it takes is one phone call from an LGT
lawyer to get such policies reversed.
