Charlotte, NC asked in Bankruptcy and Employment Discrimination for North Carolina

Q: Employment/Retaliation Lawsuit

I was let go from my job in 8/2019 due to retaliation. In 11/2019 I filed a complaint with the EEOC but it was dismissed due to it being out of their scope, the company was too small. Long story short the company I worked for had filed Chapter 11 bankruptcy which is still in process. Prior to being let go I had been questioning some expenditures by the president as they were outside of the scope of allowable expenses. After being let go I reported the expenses to the Bankruptcy Admin and the president was found guilty. Steel Partners was the owner of the company. Steel has a stake in the bankruptcy as they are owed for loans. Steel loaned my company $$ through DSC Services II and DSC is listed as a creditor in the bankruptcy. When the president was found guilty they chose not to prosecute and settled for $10k. DSC Services paid the president's $10k debt. This appears to prove collusion of some sort. Can I sue based on the latest information? It's messy I know.

A: The best thing you can do at this time is to consult a bankruptcy lawyer that has no relationship to the pending matter.

This is too convoluted and involved to address in a Q&A column like this.

Good luck
