Termination due to retaliation for reporting supervisor

I recently worked for a hospital in my hometown of Paris, Tx and had problems with my supervisor. I called the integrity hotline which the employees were advised to do so if they had problems, the phone call I placed to them was supposed to be confidential, but I was retaliated for doing as I was suggested and it eventually led to my termination. After a year and a half or so many more incidents happened and I contacted the Better Business Bureau and about a month later I was terminated of my employment due to misconduct. Was my actions misconduct? What actions do I need to take to have this problem solved, I am not the only employee this has happened to.

Can you prove that other people who did not complain about racism made the same error that you made and were not fired? If you can, you may have a good retaliation case. Read more about your rights at www.workplacefairness.org. If you have evidence that others made the same kind of mistake you did, but were not fired, call and make an appointment with a lawyer who regularly practices employment law. You may have to pay a consultation fee, but getting expert legal advice would be worth it.
