My sister is currently looking for a second job. She applied for a order puller position and had the interview yesterday. She arrived early and one of the supervisors told her that’s a good look. My sister said the hiring manager who is female, came out and stared at her then told her she may not be a good fit for the position. My sister is the kind of person to keep herself up. Hair done, comfortable outfit, etc., this lady told her that the job requires heavy lifting, 70+ lbs. Mind you, my sister has been working for the post office as a mail handler for 6 years. Heavy lifting is what she does 12 hours a day for 6 days. The HR manager said she doesn’t believe my sister can take constant heavy lifting for 4 hours. Is this not discrimination? She either doesn’t want to hire her because of her race or because she’s a female who they feel wouldn’t want to get her hands dirty. #discrimination

A friend of mine has been on her job for quite some time. Lately her new managers have been criticizing her work, speak negatively towards her, and even placed her on a PIP. She called me this weekend frantic because she's never been treated this way by any other managers before and suddenly she's a poor performer. She shared how other teammates are talking amongst themselves about finding a new job, posting out or taking an LOA. She's afraid HR will only make the situation worse and it's considering legal advice at this point. I really hate to hear this because she goes to work everyday and this just started happening. She's experiencing stress, anxiety, weight gain, and just an emotional roller coaster. Should she seek legal advice or contact the EEOC?

I interviewed with the same company four times. On the third interview I was told they need to create a job description and an offer letter for me. Went to the fourth interview and met the whole team. Hadn’t heard anything so naturally I followed up. Was told yesterday they hired someone else after one interview. Needless to say I was shocked since until last Friday, I was the only one who applied for the job. What’s wrong with companies these days? Could it be that I’m 59?

So I'm currently using a cane to walk because of some weakness I have in the left side of my body and I've been on a bunch of job interviews, that seem to go really well according to what I think, but then I don't get the job. Could it be because of the cane? Are employers discriminating me? Also, they don't ask anything about the cane-which I know they're not allowed to do but maybe if they did ask I could explain the reason and they'd give me a chance. Its so frustrating. Also, should I inform people that I use a cane before the interview, while on the phone? That way when I med them they're not surprised?

I (used to) work for an apartment complex. One of the benefits offered was "rent free" living (it was automatically taken from my salary) I was recently terminated after letting a friend stay with me for 1 night because she was accompanied by her service animals. Adding insult to injury, I'm facing losing my apartment because of said termination and the property manager is refusing to let me sign a lease due to my "violation" .... is this even legal?! #termination #advice #discrimination

Is being told the reason for certain outcomes is because your pretty. Isn't that discrimination?

Someone should enlighten employers not to practice age discrimination against people who are 55 - 60+ years old. I mean, isn't it against the law?

I'm glad my Lord and Savior Jesus Christ has my back and will provide the right job for me. #ageism #jobsearch #discrimination

Question

So I was terminated from my job. The company wanted me to do extra duties and I did. Just not as fast as they thought. So I go on vacation and come back to getting fired. Since then, finding a great job is hard and I'm blessed to find good work. But applying for county jobs and state jobs, with great benefits don't happen.. Can I file for discrimination or can I file a suit against the company for letting me go like that? Also, I interview well and that's it. Rejected! Is there a statute of limitations on filing? Thanks #termination #advice #discrimination #legal

Just curious...how long had you been on the job before you took vacation? How many days did you take off?
