  • Boss In Maine favoring woman Maine

    So I work for (an unfair boss) in Maine.He in the past 2 years has bought all the girls 600.00 dollar gifts and never bought the guys anything.He also bought the girls comany jackets and nothing for the boys and the girls work inside?Also one of the girls last summer wore a bikini to mow his lawn and he said nothing to her but us guys cant where any type of cut off shirt.There is a total of maybe 12 employees mayb a little less.So is this descrimination or just a (bad employer) favoring(girls) over guys?

    I've cleaned up your language a little; please watch it.

    Under Federal law, there must be 15 or more employees for gender discrimination laws to kick in. I"m not where I can look up state law to see if they have a different standard. Perhaps Betty will have it, or else I can post it later.
    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.

      Maine's Human Rights Act re discrimination/harassment pertains to employers with 1 or more employees.

      If you believe you are being discriminated against due to your gender, you can file a complaint with the Maine Human Rights Commission.
