If employee file an official complaint to labour department, and either win or lose the case, is there any risk of company will fight back and sue the employee?Or is the employee will be protected by labour law and cannot being sued for filing a complaint?

The employer has the right to file a counter-claim against the employee if he has reasons to make one. Employees are not immuned to counter claim and similar employers are also not immued to counter-claim by employees if there grounds for it.
