I have and the qualifications to go with it. I can suggest discrimination because it's my job to be alert to it and I litigate discrimination cases. No-one else is precluded from suggesting discrimination either and advising, as everyone has, that the union should be consulted. It would be a different matter if anyone was suggesting there was a dead-cert discrimination case here. It will be fact and evidence dependent. It most certainly warrants closer scrutiny, however, which is why the OP was wise to involve her union. If the OP feels she is left with no choice but to resign - if the situation becomes unbearable - there is also a potential - potential - constructive unfair dismissal claim too.
