Yeah I've been there I'm an older woman and because I get disability for me it's a mental thing for my disability and I've had a lot of people turn me away for jobs as well because I've been trying to go back to work part time and it hasn't been working out so people do stuff to intimidate me and irritate me so I won't continue the job but I know how she feels and it's also have been a thing dealing with the color of my skin because I'm black I've had some issues with that as well so I know how she feel that's why we have to keep it in God's hands got to fix it and he will put her in the position that she's supposed to be in don't let nobody stop you from trying to do what you trying to do for yourself or your family my children are grown so I'm trying to do for myself I'm trying to take care of me now and it's been very hard and very difficult especially I don't have a car and I have to ride the bus or do a uber and that's hard as well but I just want you to keep your head up #discrimination

My employer has always cut corners and has done things off the books. We are always expected to use our own vehicles to transport our drivers. We've never once been asked to provide proof of a Valid ID or proof of insurance. We have also spent the past two years paying for the gas to transport them out of pocket. A year ago while transporting two drivers I was rear ended and my car was totalled. That moment my job changed. They didn't even ask if I was okay physically or financially. When I asked for just an advance to be able to put money down for a new vehicle since I was carless and in the hole with a lease (our drivers get advances daily), my boss claimed the company said no...and then offered me a cash loan out of his own pocket. After that came my first raise. They told me policy had changed and I would see it at 15 months rather than 12. A year later it is time for my second raise and I am told the same, 15 months. A fellow employee in my same position, there one year less than myself, let it slip she received hers at one year. When I confronted my boss with this and my opinion that it wasn't fair he said, "I am sorry you feel that way, it will be 15 months." That has came and went...it has now been 17 months. A promotion intended for myself due to seniority finally came available. With no write ups, or any formal talks, I was told I was not even allowed to apply. That I had recently been banned from promotion within the company because he had noticed I had been a few minutes late a few times. (Less than 10 minutes). Again no write ups, talks, marks on my record. Within the past six months, they have stripped away my holiday pay. They claim I no longer qualify since I am 7 days off, 7 days on, but for 2 years they allowed me to accrue holiday pay. Every day is a walk on eggshells. The entire office has noticed and I come to work in shame knowing I am in the hole $22,000 for a new vehicle, and despite my begging I've received one 50 cent raise within 2 1/2 years. I work for a national transportation company. Is this treatment okay? Acceptable? Normal? #maltreatment #propertyloss #lossofwages #legalhelp #discrimination

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

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

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

You should go to human resources and ask why you were let go and explain what was going on

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

There was never a time I felt proud to work for this company as they had a difficult time accommodating individuals following ADA guidelines, not to mention that beyond my employment led to a discrimination complaint being filed with the state of Utah against this company. #discrimination #termination

Some people get fired because of a hate crime the company committed against him because of another person. 😒 #discrimination
