Employment Law Questions? Ask an Employment Lawyer.
Yes, you do. I am sorry to hear that. I would submit a complaint in writing to the HR department to have them reconsider. If they fail to respond then you should contact a local attorney who specializes in employment law. They would pursue a claim for discrimination, harassment, and a hostile work environment. Sometimes simply getting an attorney involved can get their attention.
If you have no further questions a positive rating of 5 stars would be greatly appreciated.
