She has been with her company based out of Colorado for over 10 yr. Her mother is her direct supervisor. So she has made it as far as she could at this property without pushing her mother out. And recently told that she is at the top of her position pay scale and wouldn't be getting any more. Over 2 yrs ago she made it clear to HR that she was interested in management and open to a transfer within the company to a couple other states that they do buisness in (Colorado included). Then last year when she took unpaid maternity leave they hired a lady with no experience to cover for her at a higher wage. Upon her return the non-experienced temp. was made the district manager personal asst. now less than 18 mths later is the asst. manager of a property in Colorado a position never even made available or offered to my fiance. Plus she has notified HR in the past of possible discrimination from the district manager on other issues. And we believe her mother is intentionally holding her back for several reasons. Including my fiance does a lot of her mother's job without compensation or recognition and another person wouldn't which may make her look bad. And jeopardize her own employment.
Without going into whether or not there is a claim, you would not be able to sue on behalf of your fiance, but your fiance could sue the company herself. You both should consider the impact of filing a lawsuit against someone you are related to because litigation can damage relationships between any involved parties.
