Is knowledge of protected conduct and close temporal proximity sufficient to prove retaliation?

Is knowledge of protected conduct and close temporal proximity sufficient to prove retaliation? Under some of the anti-retaliation laws, including the Whistle Blower Protection Act, a violation may be shown by proving one, that the individual who took the adverse personnel action knew that the employee blew the whistle and number two, the adverse action happened close enough in time after the employee engaged in protected conduct that a reasonable person may conclude that the protected activity was a contributing factor in that adverse personnel action.
