This is a very complex question and will depend on the circumstances so there is no way to answer it without a lot of information. However, keep in mind that proving retaliation is often of limited value to an employee.  Your employer is not legally required to do anything about "retaliation."  You employer is required to do something about "unlawful retaliation."  If someone is suffering from unlawful retaliation, it will make a big difference whether you can prove it or not.  If it is just plain retaliation, proof only matters if your employer is willing to address the situation.

Labor and Employment
Labor and employment attorneys can help both employers and workers prevent, address and resolve a variety of issues related to the employer-employee relationship. Small business owners and managers should consult with employment lawyers when crafting employment policies (including those related to hiring, affirmative action, compensation, medical leave and sexual harassment); negotiating employment contracts, non-compete agreements and severance agreements; and resolving employment-related personnel disputes. Workers should talk to a labor and employment law firm before signing any job-related contracts and for help addressing issues related to discrimination, harassment, Americans with Disabilities Act (ADA) accommodations and Family and Medical Leave Act (FMLA) requests.
