You should file a charge of discrimination with the Equal Employment Opportunity Commission (the EEOC). The EEOC would investigate the workplace at no charge to you and make a determination of whether discrimination occurred. If the EEOC finds discrimination ,they attempt to work out a resolution or, if a resolution cannot be reached,they'll either sue the employer or allow you to sue them in federal court.Lastly, your employer cannot legally discipline or discharge you for filing with the EEOC. If this sounds like something you're interested in, you can learn how and where to file a charge with them here: http://www.eeoc.gov/employees/howtofile.cfm
