I am sorry to hear this;

If the teachers are requesting certain substitutes, that is permitted and is a common practice. If however, the administration is discriminating based on a protected criteria, the individual can sue for injunctive relief (requesting the action to stop), and for monetary damages, which may include punitives designed to set an example.

These are some of the protected classes:

  • Race – Civil Rights Act (CRA) of 1964.
  • Color – CRA 1964.
  • Religion – CRA 1964.
  • National origin – CRA 1964.
  • Age (40+) – Age Discrimination in Employment Act of 1967

An employment law attorney or a civil rights attorney will be able to review the facts of the case, the particular school's history (to see if there is a pattern) and other relevant information to determine if one has a strong case.
