Hello. I am writing today regarding an employment law question. I am currently working on filing a case with the Division of Human Rights against my employer, but I am planning on resigning from my current employment this upcoming week for reasons unrelated to my case against them. Do I still have 180 days from the last date of discrimination to file my case with the Division of Human Rights if I resign from my current employment?

Thank you.I have currently taking a position as a state employee. Would filing affect my new employment?

Hello again,
Thanks for writing back...great to hear from you!
I can absolutely understand your very logical concern. I can hopefully provide some measure of peace of mind, as follows.
The law expressly affords one in your shoes with "whistle blower" or "anti-retaliation" protections. The botXXXXX XXXXXne is that filing will not impact your state employment one bit.
Hang in there, and please know you deserve to be treated properly.
Best regards,
Ben, J.D.
