Just got laid off (from industry gig). My role was slowly but surely being given to the young new hire, till she got about 50% of my duties. Im a minority. Do I have a discrimination lawsuit case?

Employment lawyer is the right move- many will do free consultation. Honestly people here - unless they are employment lawyers in your state - aren’t qualified to give you good advice.

Nope. Satisfactory performance last cycle

Do not sign any release forms. Go consult with an employment lawyer

This.

If you are a minority they will settle out of court. I have seen it many times.

If you can prove it's because you're a minority, sure. Otherwise it's just a shady, but legal, situation.

Get money. The job market is challenging, and you want to get at least 6 months severance. At the very least, get financial security while you job search.

Definitely find a lawyer. The case will be likely settled and you will get a lot of money. I know people got laid off coming back from maternity leave. They settled for half a million dollars.

Just the fact that I never received a bonus and no one else on our team is a minority and has gotten promoted etc. over me. I was definitely overlooked. And again my role was slowly downsized. Who downsizes digital and the person that pays for the hosting accounts?! My role was definitely essential.

Don't sign any paper work on exit, and consult an employment lawyer asap. The company will most likely settle on this if the facts of the case are as described and you were in good standing.

Minority might not be just limited to the team though. How is it at the firm level?

If you find a role of interest at PwC, I am happy to refer you.

Good luck OP! Hopefully the truth comes out
