This is an unfortunate development, but your former employer is only trying to protect his own ass from future repercussions. Your best recourse is to inform potential future employers that your departure from this company was unpleasant, and entirely voluntary due to unprofessional and possibly illegal behavior of your supervisor. Emphasize your side of the story - that you left because of unprofessional conduct during a meeting, and that you were not terminated by the company - and make sure that any future employer hears this from you before hearing the other side of the story during a subsequent background check. If there were witnesses to this incident, it would be helpful to have contact information for them to hand over on request, or written descriptions of the event from them in your hand ready to hand over. This is definitely going to cause you some difficulty, unless the employer has a well-known reputation for bad behavior in the industry, but it's not insurmountable. Document everything you can, and best of luck to you!
