Smyrna, TN asked in Employment Discrimination and Employment Law for Tennessee

Q: Is this considered employment discrimination?

I have worked at a job for a year and a half. My mother has also worked there for around the same time (joined her team on a retail freight team) she was manager over that area. She was promoted to store manager in which I kept working in freight. I was recently told that it was a conflict of interest & that I would have to transfer to a different store, or find other work. I chose to not transfer due to the commute to those locations & feeling I should not have had to. I’ve been there 1 - 1/2 years and just now told to choose, also told I didn’t get a separation notice. Is this all correct or should I have the right to a separation notice?? Thanks in advance!

A: While it may be unfair, what you have described is not unlawful employment discrimination. Additionally, you do not have the right to a separation notice.
