Hello contacted my HR...

Hello contacted my HR department on 3/23/17 with regards ***** ***** concerns I had about my boss. In June when the problems continued and I never got any follow up from HR I contacted them again and was told my complaint "fell through the cracks". I then spoke to the HR director and he told me he would launch a confidential investigation. My boss visited this week and gave me a final warning and was referencing information I shared that I was told would be confidential. I still don't have a resolution from HR and there is a no retialiation policy. Do I have a case and what do I do now?

Lawyer's Assistant: Because employment law varies from place to place, can you tell me what state this is in?

NY

Lawyer's Assistant: Has anything been filed or reported?

What do you mean?

Lawyer's Assistant: What confuses you?

Based on what I just shared do I have a case?
