    While you can pursue the case yourself, in most cases it is better to have an attorney represent you. I would contact an experienced employment attorney and least get some information regarding your case.

    Matthew’s Answer

    It might be best to write a letter to the company itself, and document your complaint so that if any further action is taken against you it will be considered retaliation. However, if the accommodation was eventually granted, while you may have a claim, there may be no damages, which may not make it worth pursuing.

    Matthew’s Answer

    Generally speaking, no it is not required that you apply for every single job. I would suggest that you speak with an experienced employment attorney regarding your claims for sexual harassment and retaliation.
