Q: Can i sue for discrimination if my employer had fired me after i had told them i am not Christian and not straight?
I had told my new employer the first day i had worked there that im bisexual and polytheistic and before training was over they had cut my hours and told me i have a bad attitude and my work ethic was unacceptable. He also wrote me up since i had to stay home due to being unwell(I didnt even get a warning). Also during my “training” they gave me a 45 minute walk through and let me lose when they had told me training is 2 weeks long. I was fired before my training was over.
A: Difficult case to prove bc bad attitude and poor work ethic are both legitimate reasons to terminate, whether in the probationary or training period or thereafter. Proving it was based on Christianity or lifestyle choices wil be very hard unless there is other evidence.
