A colleague from my same origin sued our public employer for discrimination based on origin. Our employer filed MSJ and it was rejected. He agreed to settle with them before the first trail date. Part of the case was the poor treatment that I got from my direct supervisor. I was a witness in my colleague's case. Would I get a similar settlement? how can I be protected from retaliation from my employer for being the main witness against them in the case?
Your advise and help is appreciated.
