Yes he hired me to be his protege and appartently I was meeting those standards, thus the different treatment
Hello Carole,Thanks for the additional information. To be more specific, by protected characteristic I meant race, gender, national origin, ethnicity, or sex. Were you treated differently for any of those reasons?
