Did my old colleague attempt to hack me?

So i recently got an email from my most recent employer with a document attached containing my 1099 file, I had opened it and downloaded it onto a different computer without an antivirus and nothing had happened, but today I opened it up from a computer in which I have norton antivirus on, and when I opened this document from the email, norton had alerted me that it removed a script from the document because “scripts may allow hackers to place malware on a computer”. So I am not exactly tech-savy but what I am seeking to find out is if there is another reason for this notification or is this definitive proof that my employer attempted to put malware on my computer. And if this is true, how to get it off of my computer.
