Florence, KY asked in Employment Discrimination and Employment Law for Kentucky

Q: School employees could receive years experience raises.Was approved 2x, 3y ago.Harassing me past 2yrs to take it back

They stated since I worked another job within the system to better my education to get a better job. Under a different job title, they said that was considered double dipping and I did not qualify for the raise. Yet I met all qualifications filled out all the paperwork and was approved for it two times. They are also doing this to my spouse. But a teacher can get her Masters to better herself while teaching. And when she gets her degree then she gets a raise. At this point I am being completely harassed it has been 2 years now and they're starting on me again.

A: You may have an equal protection claim against the employer. More facts are needed to flesh this out correctly, but it is worth investigating.
