My email [email protected] Back in jan 2012 I gave my boss a letter explaning things going on at work for ex: discrimination against my background , regarding my ascent and communication at work place . Feeling harass by my supervisisor regarding my flexibility with my kids and my shift. After they receive the letter they hired atty to interview me and she ask me if I was sueing the company. But now that they fired for supposedly giving ribbon to a customer they gave me a severance agreement giving one month pay. I feel that they just found any reason to fired me because I gave them that letter and they could fired back them cause I could had sue them.But my question is my letter that I wrote back in Jan is that powerful that they scare. Can I sue them for how much ?
