    Neville’s Answer

    Do not disclose too many details on an open question and answer board like this. Meet with an employment law specialist in private with your employee handbook, employment agreement and any other relevant document including a collective bargaining agreement if you have one. They will be in the best position to evaluate your claims and the likelihood of success.
