I work for a nation wide fabric store chain for 22 yrs. I am

Resolved Question:

I work for a nation wide fabric store chain for 22 yrs. I am one of 4 supervisors. The manager hired an asst. mgr. Therefore one of the supervisors has to be stepped down. I have been in this position for 17 yrs without any complaint from any prior managers. I also work another part time job with the school district. It has never interfered my supervisor job. The district manager will be making the decision due to the store manager not wanting to hurt anyone's feelings by making the decision. I was told that I would probably be the one demoted due the fact that I have two forms of employment. Whereas the other supervisors only have one means of employment. My question is......Is this legal grounds to demote me? Not to mention that my work will be cut from 25 hrs to 15hrs. or less

Thank you for your question. After reading my answer, if you require additional information, press "REPLY" and I will be happy to assist you further.


Unfortunately, that is a legal ground upon which you can be demoted. It would only be illegal if you could show that your employer was demoting you for a discriminatory reason (e.g., your race, age, sex, religion, disability or national origin).
