I have been working in the AUSD school district for 30 years. Over the last 2 years I have been retaliated against after being accused of abuse and found innocent and reinstated. I believe that I am being discriminated against because of my age and race. I had never had anything negative in any evaluations went above my job to help when I could and then we got a new superintendent and all of the older employees were being accused of things and resigning, under the pressure. I have been transferred without consideration of my seniority in the district without explanation . Frustration is setting in I believe that I am being discriminated against do to my age and race ? Can I be helped?

California's Fair Employment and Housing Act (FEHA) prohibits employers from discriminating, harassing, or retaliating against employees because an employee is a member of a protected category of people, including an employee's age and/or race. While it is impossible to fully determine your rights based on the information you provided, if, indeed, your new supervisor is taking action against older employees or employees of a certain race, then you may indeed have a viable claim.
