If you were fired or disciplined for complaining with or on behalf of co-workers about working conditions, you only have six months from the date that you were told you were being fired or disciplined to file a Charge Against Employer with the NLRB, which is your first step. If the NLRB thinks you're right and files a complaint on your behalf, the administrative law judge can order that the employer cease and desist their illegal practices. If you win, you can get reinstatement, back pay and interest. You can't get emotional distress or attorney's fees. Still, it might be a good idea to talk to an employment lawyer in your state before you contact the NLRB.
