Looking to get some ideas, advice from any lawyers who might be on here...
Last year I taught at a private high school (PE, Health, Computers) and had a really great year - positive all around - staff, parents, students.
This summer we agreed on terms for this school year (payment, hours etc) as a contract worker. Then, a few weeks before the semester started the principal found out that I am gay. He said I would not be returning for this reason. I tried extensively to negotiate etc with no progress.
I understand that in GA there is no law against discrimination based on sexual orientation (ENDA) however how does this affect legal contracts? I am not an employee but a contract worker. Can one break a contract simply by claiming the other party is gay?
I would like to sue them in small claims court (GA small claims handles up to $15,000). If nothing else I plan to attract attention to the issue and to them.
Do I have any legal recourse? Any legal grounds to stand on?
Thanks so much to anyone who might have some ideas..
