It is definitely discrimination but that does not necessarily mean it is unlawful discrimination.
Employment discrimination is unlawful if it is based on your being a member of a protected class, for example race, color, creed, ethnicity, sex, disability, or age.

Example, an employee is required to get 10 customer reviews a month. The employee asks 84 customers for reviews but only 6 respond. Is that grounds for termination when the completion of the goal requires a third party participant to follow through?

Unless you have an employment contract stating otherwise, your employer can terminate you for failing to get the requisite number of customer reviews - even though the goal is... Read more »
