You are asking the question 2 years too late. There is no single answer to your question and the answer may depend on your jurisdiction. The latest date you should report these conditions to your employer is the date that you seek medical care.

These matters are always taken on a contingency basis so you never have to pay any money, up front. The attorney can guide you so that your claim moves as smoothly as possible.
