Welcome to JustAnswer,So sorry to hear of this dilemma. If my answer is not clear to you or does not fully answer your question, please ask me for clarification by using the reply button.
The employer may lawfully treat the employees differently provided the reason for treating them differently is not prohibited by law. All employees are not required to be treated the same were held to the same standard Here is whyAbsent a written agreement to the contrary, an employee can be treated differently or discriminated against for any reason, as long as the reason is not prohibited by law.Federal laws prohibit employment discrimination on the grounds of race, religion, sex, national origin, age, disability,past, current, or future military obligations, FMLA usage or filing a workers compensation claim.
Ok, well here is another question. The employee that has kept their job through multiple last warnings for terminable offenses is an african american female. The other employee is a caucausion male, both are salary managers. The male knows for a fact that multiple african amiericans have kept their jobs for terminable offenses such as theft. The caucasion male is being terminated for supposedly swearing on the sales floor, but this can be confirmed by nobody as the complaint was filed anonymously through an 800 number
You appear to have a discrimination case against your employer based upon racial discrimination. To make a claim against your employer, you must file a "charge of discrimination" with the EEOC. The charge must be filed by mail or in person with a local EEOC office within 180 days from the date of the alleged violation.For detailed instructions, see this link:http://www.eeoc.gov
Ok and this may sound pretty stupid but is there such thing as reverse discrimination or could this be considered a case that would fall under those guidlines as long as it can be proven that both situations were identical - in fact the one person has had multiple issues
It is unlawful to discriminate against any employee because of race regardless of what race the person is
