Now the point we want to make is, fighting back 'properly' is subjective, based upon the many circumstances which are present. Sometimes a person put into this vortex of injustice needs help. That's what Union reps are for, except in many cities in the US where this has proven to be useless.
Then, you call an advocate that you trust or you go by your own gut feeling. Every case is different, and fighting back is sometimes risky but always the right thing to do, in our opinion. What you need to do is quickly assess all of your available options and pursue the one that is right for you. Always try to document everything, and be diplomatic as much as possible, but strong. You mean what you say and say what you mean.
Do not let anyone alter your career or your character profile without your informed, willing consent.
