    If the move is a disadvantage to you, you should talk to the board and union . If still not satisfied, you may want to contact an employment lawyer and discuss the issue further. It is true that your employer can transfer you at will, however, you cannot be transferred for unlawful reasons including discriminatiion.and retaliation or if the transfer is in violation of a union contract..

    The Agency may try to have your case dismissed, but once jurisdiction is established, you will have the right to request a hearing before the EEOC. Talk to the EEO office and ask if your complaint has been accepted for investigation. Once an investigation is complete, you will have the opportunity to request a hearing before the EEOC.

    I agree with the other attorney answering this question that you might have a claim. In addition to any potential contract issues, there may be procedural violations in a discharge outside of a promised probationary period.. You should seek consultation with an employment lawyer.

    For a breach of contract you would need to meet with an attorney who can review your contract with you and the circumstances of your termination. Whistleblower laws are very specific and for protection under the whistleblower laws pertaining to L&I you would need to have filed or be in the process of filing a worker's compensation claim.
