Harrassement, protected conduct maybe?

I work for Vertex Aerospace on a military installation. A foreman is more critical of my work than of any of the other employees in our section. I feel singled out because of bringing up things that are being done in violation of technical data. What course of action is available to me to prevent/stop this from happening?

Harassment

Under Title 7, Employers may not discriminate or harass an employee on the basis of race, sex, religion, or national origin. Evidence of discrimination or harassment may be direct such as a racial epithet, or indirect. You need to really examine whether you believe you are being harassed or discriminates against becuase of your sex, race, religion, ethnicity or national origin. Are there witnesses who would testify on your behalf. Ask what would they say? If you believe you are being illegally discriminated against, you need to tell your supervisor or H/R and give your employer an opportunity to investigate and fix the situation. Of course, I would recommend a one on one consultation with an attorney in your city immediately before you take any action. Good Luck to you. Again I reiterate - consult an attorney in person - do not simply rely on what I have written - it is no substitute for a real individual consultation.
