Then just like a week or two later my account was deactivated. I didn't have any... View More

I negotiated a 10% bonus in my offer letter. A lot of my peers did not. Company decided to roll out a new company wide plan where people at my same “grade” and title get a 20% bonus. They will not consider changing my rate because it is in my offer letter. Just because I negotiated a bonus when... View More

Health issues with swelling. Some of the swelling was in my gut. Let me add this I am a female and work with all men for these 16 years.

Short answer - yes -- but that does not mean you will win; you will have to prove your case with facts and depositions to prove that in fact it was wrongful. This could be a costly road, but then if you win, you have a good chance of also recovering attorney fees
