Retaliation claims require your specific act is protected from retaliation by statute or common law. If the act is not protected then your employer is free to retaliate. Employees often misunderstand that employers are only prohibited from retaliating against an employee for those acts specifically identified by law. Here you may have a claim if the state unemployment statute prohibits retaliation for participating in a hearing or investigation of an unemployment claim by another employee. If it does then you should talk to an employment attorney right away about your potential claim. Learn more about retaliation claims at https://denverlaborlaw.com/employment-lawyers/wrongful-termination-claims-in-denver-colorado/wrongful-termination-in-retaliation-within-colorado/ although the link is about Colorado law it is generally applicable to understanding retaliation claims.
