I worked for the Boston Public Library for over 26 years. 21

I worked for the Boston Public Library for over 26 years. 21 of those years I was never once brought up on disciplinary action. When I started working at the Grove Hall Branch I was constantly harassed and bullied by my manager ***** *****. I was accused of false accusations, rumors were spread about my integrity and moral character. Mr. Edward sent into my desk and read a personal letter and brought to the attention of Human Resources. My reputation was trashed, my del esteem was destroyed and I became physically I'll. While out on an FMLA I was unable to pay my rent and faced eviction. Facing homelessness I asked the library for some time to try and get some help. Not only did they deny my request, they put another disciplinary action on me because I was coming I'm late. In desperation I resigned. Is there any legal recourse I could take? Because this was harassment, defamation of character and physical breakdown.
