MY BOSS SAYS . . .she can demote me, but I think she's retaliating against me.

"Retaliation" has a very specific meaning in employment law. The laws that prohibit discrimination based on race, sex, religion, national origin, age and disability also make it illegal to retaliate against individuals who oppose unlawful discrimination or participate in an employment proceeding. If you have complained to your employer about discrimination, filed a charge of discrimination with the Equal Employment Opportunity Commission ("EEOC") or the Louisiana Commission on Human Rights, participated in a discrimination proceeding (as a witness for example) or otherwise opposed discrimination, your employer cannot retaliate against you.
