DO: Talk with an attorney immediately to determine if your rights have been violated. If so, it is critical that you do not miss the deadlines that apply to your case.
DO: Check to see if you have evidence documenting what happened. If you have legitimate access to any documents, reports, emails, and text messages, these items could be essential to your case.
DON’T: Tell others about your attorney's advice. Even if you trust these individuals, this sort of information generally makes its way back to the employer and is often distorted.
DON’T: Sign anything without discussing it with an attorney. Even if you think you understand what is being put in front on you, it’s best to get a second opinion from an attorney engaged in the practice of employment law.
DON’T: Lose control. Try to remain calm and surround yourself with friends and family who are supportive.
