    Is it too late?

    Im 24 yrs old an I was fired from my job on 3/2010 over a phone call from my employer she fired me and prohibited me to ever call or step into the office, she said that she *was very disappointed in me and that she didn't want to hear my cheap excuses,*her reasons were because a patient had complained to her over a misunderstanding we had when I first started working in the office in 2006 (4 years prior). At first I was embarrassed due to the misunderstanding and of what the office might have thought of me, I was also embarrassed for my family to whom I didn't want them to think I was being challenged over my sexuality without proof,*I recently went to my country and talked to a family member who is a Dr. and he was shocked and asked me why I didn't do anything in return. I said that I stayed away first in shame for what they called and thought of me. When she fired me she never gave me any type of recommendation or help I have been unable to get a job ever since. I feel that it was unfair because the office is run not by the Dr. but by the secretaries who are all family related and I was the only outcast who they always looked down upon. Is there anything that can be done now???? Or is it too late????*

    You have not went into detail about exactly what happened or how your sexuality has anything to do with any of this but I don't see how any of the actions on the part of employer were illegal. You need to find a new job and move on.

    Even assuming arguendo, OP, that your employer illegally discriminated against you in effectuating your discharge in 2010 due to your sexual orientation, you have likely waited too long to pursue any recourse. The longest possible statute of limitations period for such a claim which I am aware of is one year for certain state anti-discrimination statutes. Since nearly two years have passed, it would appear far too late for you to commence an action, even if you had solid grounds for pursuing such a disparate treatment claim.

    The things are not clear in this case and you are talking about it very late so better to leave this.
