It would be a good idea to contact an experienced attorney. You may have claims other than IDOL claims that the IDOL will not help you with. Many experienced employment attorneys, myself included, wil provide a free consultation.

You do not indicate the basis for the retaliatory discharge claim but experienced employment counsel should be able to provide one-stop services for you.
