, be careful when trying to play your "C" card.
I have a perception that employers became smarter in the last few years and playing "C" card, LGBT card, [put whatever name] card became riskier. With a proper documentation on a part of employer such cards are typically useless against a corporate HR/legal machine.
I observed a couple of such cases in the last year and in both cases people decided not to play their cards.

How big is this company?
Does it have any HR or an attorney?
Why was your husband involved in this incident?
Is your husband a skilled player of the office politics?

The latest is a note that basically sets him up to be fired for cause (he’s a partner so if he’s fired for cause, he loses his stake in the company).
Are you sure that you can 100% trust all these explanation?
Is it possible that these vacations may be just an excuse for getting rid of your husband?
In this case partners of your husband may have much better paper trail to support their case.

You are not going to trust 100% the advice of this lawyer?
Often lawyers encourage litigation even when they do not believe in its success themselve.
Negotiating an "amicable" separation may be a good option for your husband even if he receives noticeably less that he believe he "deserves".
