Thank you for your question. I look forward to working with you to provide you the information you are seeking for educational purposes only.
If the bank is treating you differently based on your age/race/sex/disability/NATIONAL ORIGIN, then your first step here is you must file a complaint with the EEOC, because they must investigate your complaint and issue a right to sue letter to enable you to proceed to court.
As far as banking regulation violations, that would need to be reported by you to the WA Attorney General's Office, since they handle unfair and deceptive practice complaints of this nature and also to the WA Department of Financial Institutions (http://www.dfi.wa.gov/). If they are doing this to you though over your national origin and because you are complaining about their unfair practices, you have a claim to pursue and you need to file your complaints first and then engage a local attorney to represent you and protect your rights and protect you from retaliation by the employer.
Thank you for your reply.
If they terminate you for filing the claims, it would be considered wrongful termination for retaliation and that would be a separate suit against them above your other claims above. So they can always terminate an employee, but if they do for you filing the complaints, then you have another legal claim against them.
Thank you for your reply.By leaving instead of filing your complaint, you did not do the wrong thing if it was done so you could get away from the situation. You still need to file your complaints.
