A former employee of the Trump National Golf Course has directed a lawsuit at his former employer after being terminated for complaining of homophobic harassment by co-workers.

A former employee of the Trump National Golf Course in New Jersey is suing the company for firing him after complaining about homophobic harassment.

Pink News reported that the complainant, Eleazar Andres, says that after he came out in 2014, co-workers started directing homophobic slurs at him.

According to Andres, supervisors witnessed him being called "faggot" and "maricon" but did nothing to stop it. The harassment even turned violent when a co-worker threw a rock at his head, hospitalizing him.

State anti-discrimination laws designate that employers must foster a hostile work environment based on sexual orientation.

The lawsuit alleges that the Trump National Golf Course failed to "implement any preventative or remedial measures to protect against unlawful harassment."

Andres claims that after displaying "willful indifference" to his complaints of abuse by co-workers, he was fired as a result of said complaints.

The Trump National Golf Course contests these accusations, and the case remains in court-mandated metiations at this time.

Trump has been praised by supporters for his position on LGBT rights; many point to his private club Mar-a-Lago in Palm Beach, Florida, where he is supposedly the first club owner to allow openly gay members.
