It might be discrimination from the standpoint of an employer favoring employees who are flexible about schedule changes vs. those who are not but that's not illegal discrimination.  Discrimination based upon age, gender, race, religion is unlawful.  You don't necessarily have a protected right in your scheduled day off.  If its a day off for a religious observance that's truly important to you, then maybe. 

I recommend that you seek out a local attorney for a more in depth discussion of the matter. I do not recommend that you take any action steps without such a consult. Act quickly because by waiting, you may lose certain rights and remedies available to you.
