I believe a TEMP AGENCY discriminated against me for a job

1 Answers. Asked on Apr 10th, 2017 on Labor and Employment - New Jersey
More details to this question:
My friend Pat and I both worked at Verizon as temps. Her assignment ended a month after mine. She quickly got another job with Prudential. I got in touch with the same agency. They said they'd try to get me in. Pat is black and female and in her 40s. I am 54 and a white male. Pat left her job a week ago to go back to Verizon. She gave my info to her manager. Pat and I have the same skills and background. I was never called or considered. What are my next steps?

 There's not a lot of facts to support a discrimination claim beyond the fact that the two of you are different races.  However, you can consider consulting with an attorney or speaking with someone at the Division of Civil Rights or the EEOC

Labor and Employment
Labor and employment attorneys can help both employers and workers prevent, address and resolve a variety of issues related to the employer-employee relationship. Small business owners and managers should consult with employment lawyers when crafting employment policies (including those related to hiring, affirmative action, compensation, medical leave and sexual harassment); negotiating employment contracts, non-compete agreements and severance agreements; and resolving employment-related personnel disputes. Workers should talk to a labor and employment law firm before signing any job-related contracts and for help addressing issues related to discrimination, harassment, Americans with Disabilities Act (ADA) accommodations and Family and Medical Leave Act (FMLA) requests.
