I believe this is a direct result of a number of things, 1. I am a female 2. I do not have a college degree 3. I am no longer in a relationship with this Senior Vice President. I do not feel comfortable continuing my career here and feel I should be compensated. Please advise if I have a case. Thanksi
Based solely on the information you have provided
you don't have a case. 1. I am a female
To sustain a discrimination
case under the EEOC
, you must show that all females in the same position as yours are being treated the same way. You must also show that the employer specifically said that because you are female you are being demoted. You don't mention this being the case.
2. I do not have a college degree
There is no case law or law where education is protected right and not subject to discrimination. This means the private employer can legally discriminate if you do not have certain education. The private employer is allowed to make any changes to the work place so long as the employees are put on notice of these changes.3. I am no longer in a relationship with this Senior Vice President.
EEOC requires that there be sexual harassment
which is legally defined as unconsented sexual relationship
or unconsented sexual obligations
in exchange to keep your job. You indicated this was a mutual relationship and do not mention that you were forced in the relationship or obligated to continue with the relationship in exchange for keeping your job.
I know this is not something you wish to hear, but it would be a disservice to state otherwise.
