My question may seem like a slightly odd one, but here

My question may seem like a slightly odd one, but here goes...I work for a large retail chain. My job title is Cashier assistant. This involves running for items, boxing up people's orders and generally doing whatever is needed to help the customer.Occasionally I will cashier. Cashiers are paid an extra 50 cents an hour more than an assistant, and when cashier ingredients in receive that extra money while on the register.I enjoy my assistant role and have passed on multiple opportunities to promote to cashier so that I can do what I enjoy.recently a full time cashier that has been known to be incredibly slow has started doing assistant work. The managers don't want him on the lanes because of his speed, and will not address the issue of his speed with him. I was told he has played the race card in the past, and thats why he is allowed to do whatever he wants. basically they're afraid of a lawsuit.The issue I have is that I am now being made to cashier in his place, while he is doing my job description. He also is continuing to receive the extra 50 cents an hour, because he is classified as a cashier. Is it legal for them to continue paying this employee the cashier pay for doing assistant work, while the rest of us assistants are payed less for the same job.

I was written up for "working off the clock". (Wrote an email while not clocked in.) Our general information guide for our company does not clarify exactly what working off the clock means and there are several instances where other people have done the same thing and other things that are work related, off the clock. Is this something that I can take to HR if I can prove that there are inconstancies on not holding everyone accountable throughout the company, not just my store, on this policy?

I had gotten a new job last month. There were two employees

I had gotten a new job last month. There were two employees myself and one other woman. She was leaving a lot of her heavy work for me to do. When I finally said something, after weeks of this, an upper manager came in to talk to the other employee. When I arrived to work, this upper management man showed me how all the work had been completed, but it hadn't been. When I mentioned it, I was told to"Quit my bitching". Is this legal? I had a legititmate complaint. Think there may have been some favoritism in there too.I was really offended. I'm a bitch because I have high work ethics?Yipes.Just wonderingThank You,Laurie

I work retail and recently my store manager was let go by

I work retail and recently my store manager was let go by loss prevention. I am second in command and my district manager asked if I wanted the store manager position I said I would consider it and he put me in as "acting" store manager and sent me to store manager training out of state and verbally poised me the permanent position. When I got back he met with me and said that the senior VP of stores did not want to promote me but would not tell me why. I'm confused because my store was the top three in the company last year and I have a proven track record with this company so I feel I am being punished because of my previous manager's mistakes. Is this discrimination? It's my understanding they are still look for a store manager and they are waiting for me to complete my 90 days as acting store manager but I have a feeling they have already offered it to another, they are just waiting.

What constitutes unfair treatment? I am in an untenable position, working for a man that is obsessive and paranoid. He micromanages every aspect of my job. He says one thing one time and then changes it another time. There are other things, but in general, what besides blatant unfairness constitutes unfair treatment?
