Hello and welcome to JustAnswer.

I'm sorry to hear about your situation and hope I can help.

My goal is to provide you with excellent service.

Can you tell me if the employee believes that he was treated differently due to discrimination based on a protected characteristic, or does the employee just believe preferential treatment is being shown due to the employer liking the other employee more or the employee less?
