I am the only female at my job. I have 20yrs exp in my field far more than any others. I am usually a trouble shooter for the company and often do training of new hires. I have a great attendance record, several customer compliments and my coworkers enjoy working with me. However I have been passed over for promotion consistently. Everyone who has been hired after me has moved up. Do I have a case of gender discrimination?

These cases are fact sensitive and depend on analysis of them. There are also time limitations which may have impact from the instance of discrimination. Still it is posssible from the facts you state that there may be a basis of discrimination based on gender or possible age. You also do not state the size of the company which may have some relevance to possible claims. Best advice schedule an appointment with a knowledgeable attorney to discuss your situation and the applicable facts.
