Employment Law Questions? Ask an Employment Lawyer.
Thank you for the information. Just to repeat what the Site discloses in several places, including the TOS, this is not a legal representation site, nor do we give advice or opinions since we are not forming an attorney-client relationship. We do, however, provide legal information as it relates to a specific question and options to resolve issues, if there are some. If that is what you are looking for, then I will need you to ask a specific legal question. Also, just to supplement the information you have provided, are you saying that you believe you are being targeted not because of a personality or performance issue but instead because of your race, national origin, gender, age (over 40), disability, religion, pregnancy, or military service?
Thank you for your reply. For reasons having to do with my Bar Association's ethics rules I cannot provide the phone call service that the Site advertises. That is not my offer, it is theirs and unfortunately, it does not comply with those ethics rules I mentioned. Therefore, I will not be able to assist you if you are wanting a phone consultation. If that is what you are wanting, please confirm and I will opt out of your question and perhaps another Legal Expert will be willing to provide that service.
Hello again and thank you for that information, although I don't see where you directly answered my question about whether you felt like you were being targeted because you are in a protected class (the list I provided) under employment discrimination laws. That is key here, because if you are not being targeted for being in one of those categories, then there is no "discrimination" or EEO case. In other words, although the treatment you have received might violate your bargaining agreement, which you can grieve and follow the processes through your BA for, there would be no independent cause of action for discrimination unless you are being targeted simply because you are a member of a protected class.
If you do believe that this treatment is only due to the unlawful discrimination I described, then you can file a complaint with the EEOC, which is the Federal agency that handles unlawful discrimination. If not, then you must use your union grievance process if you believe that the bargaining agreement has been violated by your supervisor.
Please feel free to ask for clarification if needed. If none is needed, then if you could take a moment to leave a positive rating in the box above, I will receive credit for assisting you today. Thank you
No, there is no "discrimination" unless there is adverse employment actions or severe or pervasive harassment and it is motivated by an employee's gender, race, national origin, age (over 40), disability, religion, pregnancy, or military service. So, there must be both the kind of treatment I mentioned and the motivation I mentioned.
I wanted to touch base with you and make sure that you did not have any further follow up questions for me from the answers I provided to you on the 11th. For some reason, the Experts are not always getting replies or ratings (at the top of the question/answer page you are viewing or in the pop up box for this question), which is how we get credit (paid by the Site) for our work, that the customer thinks have gone through. In your case I never received your rating. If you are having technical difficulties with reading, replying or rating, please let me know so that I can inform the Site administrator. Please note that Site use works best while using a computer and using either Google Chrome or Firefox.
In any event, it was a pleasure assisting you and I would be glad to attempt to assist you further on this issue, or a new legal issue,if needed. You can bookmark my page at: http://www.justanswer.com/law/expert-marsha411jd/
