Ask a Lawyer and Get Answers to Your Legal Questions
Does the employer have at least 15 employees? Do you think the real reason you were denied the promotion was based on your age, gender, race, etc?
I see. Under the NLRA, employers cannot discriminate or retaliate against your for union activity. You need to consult with a labor law attorney in your area about your options; ie, sending a demand letter to the employer that it remedy the situation, or filing a lawsuit for damages.
The state and county bar associations should be able to refer you to an attorney. Ask for one that provides a low cost or free consultation.
Please let me know if you need additional information.
