  • Discrimination Michigan

    I was offered full time employment with the promise that i wouldn't seek the
    medical insurance the company offered ... being native american i was told i
    don't really need it as i can rely on the tribal doctor.I took the position because i needed full time . Now other people that were hired later have been promoted to full time and took the insurance . I was told this is because they need it they have children. I am a little upset and feel like i have been treated unfair . Is there anything i can do.

    I believe there might be discrimination here & you can put in a complaint with the EEOC if your employer has 15 or more employees. However, hold for other opinions.
    Too often we underestimate the power of a touch, a smile, a kind word, a listening ear, an honest compliment, or the smallest act of caring, all of which have the potential to turn a life around. Leo Buscaglia

      I'm seeing both Title VII and ERISA violations here. Title VII for denying you insurance based on your race; ERISA for denying you insurance that it appears you would otherwise have qualified for, at all. You can contact the EEOC (for illegal discrimination) and the US DOL (for ERISA) for additional information and assistance.
      The above answer, whatever it is, assumes that no legally binding and enforceable contract or CBA says otherwise. If it does, then the terms of the contract or CBA apply.
