If, as you assert, your action was not prohibited by FINRA rules or federal law, then the employer has no authority to negatively report you to FINRA. If the employer does so, then you can demand an arbitration, and the FINRA arbitrator will hear each side's facts and arguments and decide if the negative entry was/is valid.
