My question involves labor and employment law for the state of: CA
I am the only employee out of 35 that is in this city's branch of an international Korean company that is not Korean or of Korean descent, (there is one Vietnamese, and one Filipino but that is it for the diversity of the company's branch here). I am of Jewish and Italian descent, and white skinned. This is a sales company.
The company has a training program that includes a 3 month probationary period at which the employee is designed to be trained so that he can do his job appropriately. Other new sales reps are given this 3 month training period. I have been given a 3 WEEK probation period, with only 5 days to sell a major product or I will be terminated. I do not understand the product properly nor the procedures to actually deliver the product to the consumer, so I am guaranteed to fail. This was not discussed in the employee handbook, nor at the interviews.
Is there such a thing as discrimination against a "non minority" group?
standard employee: 3 month to train, sell and deliver product, 100% Asian/Pac. Islander group
me: 2 weeks to "train", 1 week to sell product.
Me: White (Jewish and Italian).
