Hello again and thank you for your reply. The only question I don't see that you responded to is the one about what HR said about why your job was changing and wages cut. But in any event, your question was whether or not it would be worth seeing an attorney about this. Normally, workplace bullying
and unreasonable expectations is not considered unlawful even though it may clearly be unprofessional and poor management. However, if adverse employment actions are taken either in violation of company policies or because an employee is a member of a protected class, then there may be a legal issue.
In this case, if you believe all of these negative actions were motivated by your gender, then yes, you should sit down with a local employment law
attorney and discuss the details of the case. However, if you don't think gender was the reason for your treatment and reduction in wages, etc., then there would not be a legal issue to discuss. In that case, as I indicated above, it would clearly be unprofessional, just not illegal.
If you do think gender was the motivating factor, then you will want to speak to an attorney sooner rather than latter as there are some very short timelines for filing discrimination
complaints with the State and/or the EEOC
, which are necessary before you file suit.
Please let me know if you need any clarification. I would be glad to assist you further if I can.
