Customer Question

Good evening. I was working for a government contractor who is selling the company. Our out side auditors have been making entries to our books. Now that the company is up for sell, I informed the owners that our outside auditors could not continue to make entries. I was told that I was not a team player and that I should work to cover this up since we are all in this together. This caused a lot of stress for me as I knew it was wrong. I became sick and had to have minor surgery. While out, my supervisor called me to tell me that my position was being eliminated. I have never received anything in writing but was asked to turn in my work computer. I requested to take vacation vs being paid out my vacation. Two weeks later I still have not received anything telling me officially that my position has been eliminated but during this time, the owners created a new position and promoted someone to that position. I was not offered an opportunity to compete and position was never posted internally or externally. Do I have a case
