Thank you very much for your reply. Although I wish I could tell you otherwise, this is not an EEOC issue. Perhaps there is a disparity in treatment in that you, rather than the other Spanish speaking employees are being forced to translate, but this disparity is not due
to your nationality/ethnicity. That wouldn't make any sense because these other employees, who are being allowed to pass on translating assignments, are also Spanish speaking and so presumably of the same nationality/ethnicity.
Claims for "discrimination" require more than simply showing a disparity in treatment--they require a disparity that is occurring because
of a protected characteristic, such as race, ethnicity, or nationality. What is happening in your case is unfair, but that does not make it actionable discrimination, as the employees who are receiving more favorable treatment (being allowed to pass on the translation assignments) are of the same nationality as you and so you cannot allege that nationality is the basis for your unfair treatment
. I hope that makes sense.
Again, this does not mean that you have NO claim, simply that there is no claim for discrimination within the meaning of the law and therefore no need to involve the EEOC. What you describe appears to be actionable as a breach of your collective bargaining agreement, which can be pursued through your union rep as noted above.
Again, please feel free to let me know if you have any further concerns. If I have answered your question, I would be very grateful for a positive rating of my service so that I may receive credit for assisting you.
