My current situation has necessitated my doing a lot of research into
Employment Law. Your situation sounds similar to a landmark decision in the
1960's called "Griggs v. Duke Power". I don't have all the details in front
of me, but if memory serves, the facts of the case are as follows:

Several black employees became eligible for promotion to higher-paying
positions. The company changed the qualifications to require a high-school
diploma for those positions, knowing full well that there were more white
employees with high school diplomas who were also qualified than black
employees. The court ruled in favor of the employees citing discrimination
by disparate treatment.
