Glass Ceiling and Failure to Promote

We help push through the glass ceiling, the metaphorical barrier preventing women, minorities, and other individuals belonging to a “protected class” from reaching the next level of success in their careers

We aim to advance our clients’ careers, wages, and reputations

GLASS CEILING AND FAILURE TO PROMOTE

All businesses, including educational institutions, should have a standard procedure for training and advancing those deserving of promotion. Employers should outline performance requirements as well as the mandatory period of time required before an employee is eligible for a promotion. If your employer does not have policies and procedures in place, you might be subjected to promotion discrimination.

If you file a promotion discrimination claim in federal court, Title VII of the 1964 Civil Rights Act is the federal law that wil be applicable to your case. Failure to promote an employee due to his or her status as a member of a legally protected class is illegal. To effectively argue your glass ceiling discrimination case, you should be able to prove the following:

  • You are a member of a protected class.
  • You asked or applied for a promotion.
  • You were denied that promotion or raise.
  • Another person with similar qualifications received the positions or raise.
