I filed an EEOC complaint against my former employer after they terminated me. I went to work for their Authorized Contractor. After 3 weeks of employment I was terminated from Authorized Contractor upon receipt of email from former employer. Is there any law-protecting employee in this instance?
This was an At Will contract. When I contacted former employer regarding email sent to Authorized Contractor they said they couldn’t tell Contractor who to heir and fire and they denied sending any such email. I know Project Manager for Authorize Contractor he told me he did not want to fire me but he was being pressured to do so. He informed me if I had a subpoena sent for email he would comply. Is this a case of deformation by former employer?

Did you have a non-compete agreement with the former employer? Also, former employer may have a provision in the contract with the Authorized Contractor that prevents them from hiring people that worked for former employer.

You may have a case of retaliation against the former and new employer. You can't be fired for filing a charge of discrimination. The former employer may also be liable for tortious interference with your employment. You should contact an employment attorney to discuss your rights and options.
