CHARLESTON -- A Braxton County man is suing the West Virginia Office of Technology after he claims he was discriminated against because of his age, race and gender.
Ali R. Dabiri is an employee of the state and is employed as a Database Administrator II (DBA II), according to a complaint filed Dec. 1 in Kanawha Circuit Court.
Dabiri claims he is receiving pay at a pay level which is discriminatory against him based on his age, gender and national origin.
The defendant's discrimination against Dabiri in his rate of pay on the basis of age, gender and national origin violated the West Virginia Human Rights Act, according to the suit.
Dabiri is seeking injunctive relief, including correction of his pay rate. He is being represented by Walt Auvil.
The case has been assigned to Circuit Judge Jennifer Bailey.
