Customer Question

I attended the meeting today with my employer. HR and My boss' boss were present via a conference call. So it was just my boss and I physically present in her office. She was rolling her eyes and giving me rude looks every time I would say something. HR wanted me to go over everything I had already typed up and emailed to them. I declined to rehash everything as it is on paper for everyone to see and I did not misunderstand what was said to me. I informed everyone that I had consulted with and attorney and pending how this meeting went that I may file a claim for gender and race discrimination with EEOC. At that point HR asked me to step out of the room and they spoke privately with Toni (my boss) and Shannon (Toni's boss). When I was asked to rejoin them I was told that they will be consulting their legal department and will get back with me. I was told that I was welcome to return to work and that Toni would provide me with my schedule of patients to see. I told them that I do not feel comfortable working under Toni because I fear she will retaliate against me for my complaints against her. I told them I would like to consult with an attorney before returning to work. I am so nervous and don't know what to do. Should I just resign since that is what they want me to do?

They've offered you a position to work at so, generally, you 'd have to accept that position or any claim of discrimination would be nominal (i.e., there'd be no cash damages involved). My best thought is that you file the discrimination charges, retun to work and if anything adverse happens with your employment you then have an even more clear case of retaliation.
