I live in illinois, and work in the nursing field.
I recently filed a harassment thing, the person filed a retribution right back. So now I'm kinda getting punished. I could really use some help on this matter. I fear a possibility of loosing my license.
Well, keeping in mind I'm neither a lawyer, nor an employment expert, a couple of things occur to me.
1. Can one be fired for filing a harassment complaint? I believe there would be protections in place there.
2. If you're a nurse, you're likely a member of a nursing union, yes? You should be able to go to them for advice, no?
3. If you can afford a lawyer, it might be smart to get one.
Again, this is advice from someone who really has no expertise in such matters, so do keep that in mind :)
