Forced to Quit My Job - What Can I Do?

Believe You Were Fired Because You Are Different?
You May Have Protection
I Was Forced to Resign Instead of Being Fired

If you have a claim for illegal discrimination, harassment or retaliation, you should consult an attorney to learn the rules on how to perfect such claims by filing with the EEOC and/or your local municipal or state equal employment agency.

In some cases, such as those arising under the Family and Medical Leave Act or the Fair Labor Standards Act (governing overtime), you may proceed directly to court.

Sometimes, employees in such circumstances are forced to resign, or convinced to quit in lieu of termination.  Although ordinarily a quit cuts off most of your rights under state and federal employment laws, that is not always the case.
