This is a very good question. However, your issue may be a lot more serious and complex than you realize. As a result, it Is virtually impossible to provide a concise answer here.

I suggest that you contact an experienced employment law attorney immediately. In fact, if you wish, you can call me and I will be glad to give you a free initial consultation over the phone. You can reach me at (216) 475-5600.
