If you complain to a coworker’s manager and later that same day you fired because of “team compatibility reasons”, could this be grounds for a retaliation lawsuit despite living in an ‘at will’ state?

HR question - a friend of mine was fired from an industry job. He is still struggling. While he is still employed, he would love to get back to the same company. Although performance was an issue listed it was really the manager. He didn’t like him. Now that manager is out of the company. Can he join that company back? Generally does HR policy allow that?
