I have worked for my emplyer for 28 years. The son bought the company from his father. Since he took over every empolyee, except myself, has been given wage at least 1 wage increase. I am the only female employee and run the office by myself. When I mention a raise her refers to a bonus that we should get at the end of the year. No one else has had to wait for the end of the year.
State/Country relating to question: Connecticut
Hello,Thank you for the information. Can you tell me what your specific question is? Also, will you please tell me how many employees does the company have? Are you the only employee that does administrative duties? What does everyone else do in general?Thank you
What do you mean by my specific question? Isn't it obvious. 9 employees. Yes as I said I am the only office staff. The balance of the emplyees work in the electric motor shop.
Assumptions are always dangerous and attorneys do not generally make those. I have been doing this for many years and I can see many issues, but only wanted to address what you needed help with. In any event, I can tell that we might not be suited to work together, so I will opt out and let one of my colleagues assist you. No need to reply to me, they will let you know when they have an answer for you.
Hello and thank you for using the JA website. Please remember that this site is intended to provide general legal information only.I see that your previous expert has opted out of assisting you any further. You mention that there are nine employees but you do not say what legal information you are seeking.
I want to know if this would be considered sexual discrimination?
1/2 hr no response.
With respect to your most recent post, it took you about 23 minutes to respond back to my request and I unfortunately am not able to sit at the computer non-stop all day. I do sometimes have other obligations which include helping other customers and personal responsiblities. You also happened to respond while I was responding back to you. You fill find your answer below. There is no need to get out of sorts :)I obviously cannot give you a legal opinion because that is prohibited by the site and also because I am not your attorney and I cannot investigate and interview witnesses. I can tell you what the law is, however. Since your employer has less then 15 employees, your legal recourse if you believe you are the victim of gender discrimination would be to file a complaint with the CT Human Rights Office. The procedures on how to file a complaint can be found here:http://www.ct.gov/chro/cwp/view.asp?a=2523&Q=315790Please let me know if this has answered your question. If you need clarification, please do not select a rating yet. Instead, click the Reply or Continue Conversation button.

May I ask why you left me a negative? I believe I answered your question. If I did not, please let me know what part I did not answer so that I can answer it for you.
