  • Possible discrimination Nevada

    My production manager told me that the number of projects will increase and he wants them done faster with minimum errors delivered.

    I understand that some positions require typing accuracy and speed of 40-200 WPM and the company can measure and demand that you type at the speed that you were hired for. However, in my position, speed was, and is not measured and I was never tested on how fast I could do a project; the interview questions were related to years of experience, and software knowledge, etc.

    I am concerned about nationality discrimination because I have seen some bias in regards to timelines. Other employees, are getting more time when working on projects. I don't mind that others get extra time as long as I can finish the job to my satisfaction; however, if I need to sacrifice quality or missing timelines because of fast turn around demands; then, it's a big problem, because its going to affect my performance.

    I am wondering what options do I have? Legally, how fast can a manager demand that I work where there are no speed standards for my position, such as there is in typing clerical positions.

    Thank you in advance for your response.

    Unless you have a binding employment contract to the contrary, your employer/manager can require that you get a project done in any period of time they desire. They can't give one employee less time than another to do the same project though due to a reason prohibited by law (they can't give you less time/discriminate against you just because of your nationality for example).

      What EVIDENCE do you have that, but for your nationality, you would be given different standards?
      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.

        Are all the employees who are getting additional time for their projects all of the same race/nationality?
