Employment Law Questions? Ask an Employment Lawyer.
Hi, My name is***** am an attorney with over 16 years experience. Hopefully I can help you with your legal question.
This depends...can you tell me, what is the reason for this disparate treatment? Why is the employer treating one group differently?
ThanksThe issue here will be IF the employer is treating one group of employees differently based on a protected status. A protected status would be race, gender, ethnicity, national origin, etc. You can see the entire list here
If they are treating groups differently based on a protected status? That violates the law and could be a basis for an illegal discrimination suit.
Otherwise, it is not illegal
Please let me know if you have more questions. I am happy to help if I can. Otherwise, please rate the answer so I may get credit for my work.
