You appear to be working in a hostile
work environment. This means that if you were terminated for obtaining the restraining order, you may file suit against your employer
In order to have an action against the person and your employer for hostile work environment, you will need to be able to relate the persons behavior to some type of actionable discrimination
. Mere bullying
and rude behavior is not sufficient
The U.S. Supreme Court has stated that an action for a hostile work environment exists only when there is clear discrimination on the grounds of race, religion, sex, national origin, age, and disability.
If you think your treatment is based upon one of these grounds, you may have an action.
To make a claim against your employer, you must file a "charge of discrimination" with the EEOC
. The charge must be filed by mail or in person with a local EEOC office within 180 days from the date of the alleged violation.
