If I feel as though I have been discriminated against because of a work injury what can I do?

Asked 9 months ago - Pittsburgh, PA

I was first separated from other employee's and basically told not to talk to anyone. Another employee was pulled in the office that I was talking to and told that there was way too much work for her to be talking. Basically stop talking to her. Could this be harassment? I consider it that they have made it a hostile environment. I've been denied positions that they have temps working in that I am qualified for.

    You can be terminated if you do not comply with the instructions of your manager.
