What is the name of your state? South Carolina My husband works at a local grocery chain and has for the past 6+ years. He has yet to get a raise in the last 2 years or any kind of promotion what so ever. He has work in retail for 13 years so it is not lack of experience or knowledge. Me personally i think it is because he is over weight. I have read that there is not anything under the discrimination law for overweight individuals. The question is, is there ANYTHING that can be done about discrimination of the overweight in the workplace? If they can cover religion, race, and sexual orientation then why can't the overweight be protected as well?
