Hello and welcome,

Do you have any reason to believe you may have been discriminated against on the basis of your race, age (40 or older), gender, disability, or something else?

As far as, I know , you can not be singled out period at work without a paper trail reguarding work performance and included work relations with others
Expert:  Tina replied 6 years ago.
No that is not true unless there employer has a strict written policy which does not provide them with discretion, which most employers know is not in their interest.

There is normally no protection against the employer's action based on a personality conflict or their decision that you are not a good fit for the job. Unless they discriminate or retaliate against you based on some protected classification such as race, gender, age, or disability, the employer is typically permitted to make such decisions as they deem necessary for their business needs.
