I'm on intermittent fmla leave I used the past 5 days for fmla. My claim says I can use up to five days a week.

I work as a government contractor in Virginia. There were a series of incidents at work that got a group of us counseled and spoken to...but then it later came out that we were actually innocent of what we were counseled for. I asked for a written confirmation for the record so that this incident couldn't be held against me in the future...and in response I was pulled aside and told to man up, whether I had a male genitals, and that if I dared to mention the words HR that I would be sent home without pay or PTO.Is there a legal case that can be made given that this was a verbal threat, that my workplace rights were violated? I have one witness who was in the room when it was said.
