I am a supervisor and currently do not have a team. I feel like I had experienced retaliation when placed on a write up after speaking with my manager about her interactions with me. After that the work relationship was very poor and very stressful.
In my department we were told about the business losing a product that we serviced and would need to seek for employment opportunities until a decision had been made. In the meantime a peer had been out of the office and upon her return my team was taken and I was placed on special projects.
I've remained on special projects and recently a peer resigned from the company and her team waso split amongst my other peer in office and another supervisor that works from home?
I feel like it I am being discriminated against and not allowed to operate in the capacity I'm which I was hired. If the decision was made to keep 2 out of 3 supervisors, now when there are 2 supervisors that report to the manager, why is it I am still without a team?
This may be a shock to you, but discrimination is not always unlawful. Most forms of discrimination, in fact, are not against the law. It is perfectly legal for your employer to treat you differently than other employees. It only becomes unlawful if you can prove the difference in treatment is your membership in a protected class of people or because you engaged in legally-protected conduct. Your post does not suggest such illegal motives.
What you describe unfair, but the law does not require fair treatment. If you think you have proof that the difference in treatment that you are facing is due to an unlawful motive as described, then the prudent move would be to locate and consult with an experienced employment law attorney as soon as possible to explore your facts and determine your options. I would suggest you look either on this site in the Find a Lawyer section, or go to www.cela.org, the home page for the California Employment Lawyers Association, an organization whose members are dedicated to the representation of employees against their employers.
Most employment attorneys who practice this area of law work offer a free or low cost consultation in the beginning and then, if the matter has merit and value, will usually agree to work on a contingency basis, meaning you can hire an attorney without paying any money until the matter results in a positive outcome for you. Many advance all the costs of the litigation as well. Do not let fear of fees and costs keep you from finding a good attorney.
Good luck to you.
