I worked at a large company in Boston for four about four years and developed a close friendship with a co-worker who did the same job I did. Last month, about three months after my friend filed a complain against our immediate supervisor for harassing her on the job, we were both laid off, along with a couple of other employees in a different department as part of a "cost cutting" restructuring. I think this is complete BS and that my friend and I were fired because our supervisor hates her because of the complaint and because he knows I'll support her complaint because I witnessed some of the harassment. My friend is considering hiring an attorney to look into the firing and I'm wondering if I have any way of also suing the company because I believe the only reason I was picked for "cost cutting" is my friendship. I know I'm and at-will employee but I've always had good reviews before I was let go. Any help is appreciated.
