Unfortunately, the employment based case is solely at the discretion of the employer/petitioner. There is nothing the employee can do unless the I-140 is already approved & the I-485 has been pending for 6 months.

Your options will depend upon where you are in the immigration process. If the I-140 has not already been approved and an I-485 filed at least six months ago you may have limited immigration options. You may want to consult with an employment attorney if the employer's actions are illegal however.
