Civil Rights Violations
If you have experienced civil rights violations with threats or force of threat, then the offender could be prosecuted criminally. If you have not been threatened, your civil rights may have still been violated. You can file different complaints based on whether there is a criminal or civil violation.
There are a host of laws along with the Constitution that define your rights as a citizen. If your civil rights are violated on the job, or you have been forced to accept a violation of your rights through threats or intimidation, then you may have the right to bring a civil action against your employer for damages. In these cases, all legal costs may be recovered from the employer if you win.
A lawyer can go over your claim and give you a better idea of the strength of your case. As always, do not delay in coming forward.
