I was released in October 2009, which employer gave reason as financial cutbacks. I knew it was for "personal" reasons primarily due to refusing to do "fraudulent" work for business. Other reasons compound above much more sinister. I have email correspondence as well as prior supv. whom can verify this was happening. How much time do I have to file and shoud I? I am fearful if I do they may give a prospective new employer a bad reference in retaliation.
