How many days after being harassed and retaliated against do

Customer Question

How many days after being harassed and retaliated against do I have to file a claim. I am still employed but on medical leave and my medical issues were made worst by the retaliation and harassment by 2 supervisors. One of the supervisors has retired. What occurred was I lost a company key and spoke with the president if I would be fired. The president spoke with the head supervisor about his decision and for him not to speak to me anymore about the key. That evening when I was leaving he was waiting on me. He opened the door for me and followed me to the exit. When we got to the exit he blocked my path and asked me why did I go to the president. I told him I though I was going to be fired. His reply was that I knew I would not be fired and continued out of the exit. Following that exchange my work load was cut. My boss gave me one thing to do at month end to print and mail 3 reports. When my supervisor came in he asked if thhe statements had been sent off my response was it was not assigned to me. He went to his office and returned to my desk and asked if I would do the statements Yes Sir was my response. That was just the beginning. This occurred on May 31, 2014.
