My employer fired me claiming I was not fulfilling my duties properly because I could no longer move boxes in the warehouse were I had been working. I was pregnant at the time and I had told my boss that my back was given me problems but I was still showing up to work everyday.
My employer got mugged by a Latino man and lately he has been openly hostile to me. I am Latino, but I have worked for him for 2 years, so I do not know why he is taking it out on me. Is this legal?
My supervisor has told me that I have no future with the company and can't count on getting another raise. He doesn't like me because I am a woman and I am getting more praise from our manager that he has ever gotten. Is this illegal?
To figure out if your discrimination situation is illegal you must determine:
1. If you are an employee protected from discrimination under the law.
3. If your employer's conduct is considered discriminatory under the law.
