I have worked for the U.S. embassy in different countries and I have recommendations from my ex-supervisors, however, last time I got a job at the U.S. Embassy, I was kicked out during the probation period because of false reasons. My supervisor stated that I can not speak English although I have a Master degree in Political Sciences from an American university with GPA of 4.0. The HR officer advised that I should find a job in place of females only as I am as she said" talkative". one of the reasons appeared in my supervisor letter to HR is that I defend myself and he asked me many times not to defend myself even if I was right.
I'm reassigning this to "Employment & Labor" law. You're more likely to get a response to your question there.
You mention a "probationary" period in your job. The answer to your question about whether you were discriminated against probably rests in your contract and the definition of that probationary period. The job contracts that I am familiar with that have a probationary clause allow you to be terminated for no reason whatsoever. You probably need to have an attorney review your contract terms.
Be aware that this response does not create an attorney/client relationship. I live and work in Massachusetts and may or may not know the local laws where you live. I hope people find my responses not only helpful but somewhat entertaining as well. If you rely on this as legal advice, remember the old saying, "You get what you pay for."
