I am a female flight attendant. I gained 7 pounds over the winter and was asked not to come back to work until I had lost all 7 pounds. My employer said it negatively impacted my interaction with my customers. My male colleague that flies the same route as me gained 10 pounds and can barely fit down the aisle and is still working. Have I been the victim of sexual discrimination?
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.
