I was basically told to shut up or leave.
So, I left.

I am sorry this happened to you, and I am sorry it happens at all.

In the event this happens again, or you have a chance to advise someoneelse whom this happens to: HR is not on your side. They never are, they never will be. In the instance where one person in HR might really be on your side because they like you, they are not doing their job. They represent corporate. period. The only one on your side is your laywer. In some (many) cases it is easier to just leave. If you get a lawyer at least you have a chance to get a check while leaving.
