I cannot work in this environment. Do I have any legal rights or should I be looking for another job?
I'm a member of a union.
I'm the only white, english 50+yr old employee he supervises. My supervisor is Afro-American.
Thank you for your reply. Could you please clarify:
You may have a case for discrimination on the basis of age (over 40) and national origin, if you believe that your supervisor is discriminating against you for these reasons.
I may believe my supervisor is discriminating against me because of my age/national origin but if he's never made comments about either wouldn't it be hard to prove?
A couple of years ago I had an adverse reaction to medication I was taking. At work, and home, I acted in a very aggressive and confrontational manner. I had to stop taking the medication and take time off work.
Because of this incident I believe I'm perceived as a 'trouble maker' by supervisors and upper management.
Should prior actions, and my shame, stop me from taking action in this situation?
