A: Call some employment lawyers.

It is irrelevant who called. Did you commit misconduct to the point that New York law says you were at fault?

Generally in NY it is hard to be denied unemployment benefits. But if an employee threatens another employee that is not good. Witnesses will be called.

If an employee has a reasonable belief that he or she may be harmed by another employee the one who threatens is usually the one who loses.

There are not enough facts to determine a win or lose. Call some lawyers.
