I was closing and then my boss hired a guy and now she has him closing and me doing odd shifts. I am trying to find out if that is discrimation?
IF you are female, and IF there is a tangible benefit to closing (i.e., more guaranteed hours, shift pay, etc.), then the answer is that your situation COULD be sex discrimination. If you are of a different race, religion, national origin, age, or disability status, then those could be the bases of discrimination.
You need to talk to an employment lawyer in detail to get definitive advice.
I'm licensed to practice law only in Indiana, and we've never met, so I can't give you "legal" advice. My answer is simply "friendly" advice based on my experience as an attorney in Indiana, my knowledge of federal and common law, and common sense. Even if you are in Indiana, employment law questions are very fact specific, and based on the limited information you provided in your post, I can't give you legal advice, and my answer is intended as general information only. It doesn't create an attorney-client relationship.
I am assuming you are female. You would have to prove that your sex is the reason. Just being in a protected class is not enough.
This response is only general information and is not legal advice. It does not form an attorney-client relationship and should not be relied upon to take or refrain from taking any action. You should seek a qualified attorney before taking any action related to your inquiry.
