Can I sue a city for discrimination.

Cranston, RI |

I am a substitute teacher. The principal of a school I was working at pulled me from a potential long term substitute job. The reason being that she "heard" I might be looking for employment elsewhere and did not want me leaving in the middle of the placement.

Discrimination by defintion means treating a person on the basis of a prejudice (discriminatory employment practice laws protect groups based on race, age, national origin, gender etc..). Here, the employer wants to fill the spot with a long-term answer and is looking for an employee that best fits that description. This does not sound like discrimination.

Good luck to you.
