If you think one of your civil liberties may have been violated it is important that you Record all the details while they're fresh in your mind. Who said what to whom? Did anyone witness it? Detailed documentation can make or break your case.

If there's an administrative process for complaining, follow through. Take whatever steps are necessary to meet the policies and procedures outlined by your employer for filing a complaint. This is important because you must put your employer on notice of the conduct about which you are complaining and give your employer a reasonable opportunity to take corrective action to stop such conduct.

Even if you do not want to take formal action, it is usually helpful to talk with a lawyer who handles civil rights and civil liberties cases to obtain guidance on how to protect yourself from further wrongful conduct. A lawyer can also tell you if your case is one of the few it might be practical to take to court. While there's no guarantee you'll be satisfied by the litigation process, action on your part is the only thing that will make it less likely that the abuse will continue into the future.
