Are you being, or have you been, treated differently than your co-workers? Were you terminated or disciplined due to your race, gender, religion, sexual orientation, ethnicity, age, or a disability? Has your employer or manager required you to clock out while still on the job or not allowed you to clock in for work meetings? Are you paid by the hour but not paid overtime because your employer has classified you as a professional or management?
