A: It is possibly retaliation, it is not possible to say based on the information you have provided. This sounds as though it was related to an unemployment insurance claim. You may need to obtain statements from witnesses or provide their contact information to whomever is investigating your eligibility for UI benefits. You should contact a local employment law attorney to discuss.
