Q: Following countless reports of discriminatory treatment, my employer falsified documents to frame in me. Now what?
I am considering using an attorney at my OAL disciplinary hearing. It should be relatively easy since they falsified documents against me, violated their confidentiality policy, time frame policy, and out right lied on me. The internal affairs officer was since fired but the State is now forced to follow through due to liability... Is this advisable. Do you handle disciplinary cases at OAL?
A: In order to prove a claim of retaliation, you will have to prove that you made a reasonable and good faith complaint of discrimination and suffered an adverse employment action For making your complaint. I would strongly recommend that you consult an experienced employment attorney as soon as possible and prior to your OAL disciplinary hearing.
