Is reporting a violation to HR a protected action?

About a year ago, my boss asked our entire team to falsify time records in order to remove vacation time from the books. We are a publicly traded company. I challenged the directive when it was given and was told that it was not illegal and we should all do it. I reported the incident to HR and my boss' boss was scolded by HR and the directive was reversed. When review time rolled around, although I had received no negative feedback from my management during the review period, my rating slipped from the 2nd highest to the 2nd lowest rating with only the vaguest justification. About a month after the review I have been informed that my position is being eliminated. It seems to me that I am being retaliated against and they are making casual efforts to disguise their retaliation as normal business practice. Is this an actionable case?
