In the world of employment law, it is fairly uncommon to see discrimination cases that are based on discrimination against men but a recent case brought by the EEOC raises just that claim. According to the EEOC's suit, in the spring of 2013, the Ruby Tuesday restaurant chain posted an internal announcement within a 10-state region for temporary summer positions in Park City, Utah with company-provided housing for those selected. Andrew Herrera, a Ruby Tuesday employee since 2005 in Corvallis, Ore., wanted to apply because of the chance to earn more money in the busy summer resort town. However, the announcement stated that only females would be considered and Ruby Tuesday did in fact selected only women for those summer jobs, supposedly from fears about housing employees of both genders together. Ruby Tuesday's gender-specific internal posting excluded Herrera and at least one other male employee from consideration for the temporary assignment.

Important!
The following is a general brief outline of wage and hour law. There are numerous exemptions, exclusions and standards that are not discussed. If you need legal advice or assistance, you must not rely on the following as legal advice and must instead seek legal assistance for your specific situation.
