Private Company in Alabama; Hires Male and Female for work. There are currently 100% females working in the call center, they use only males in the field (Funeral Home and Embalming Equipment). It was stated that, there is only one chair open for a male at the call center, and employer will not hire female whom has equivalent experience.
Would this be an affirmative action issue or a Civil Rights query? How can I go about getting something done about this?Can one be denied a position based on Gender? The employer requests a male for the call center, however, there is a female immediately available. I personally think this violates Title VII... Thank you for your reply.
