California considers employment “at will.” This means employers can fire employees for no reason at all. This does not mean that employers can fire employees based on discrimination or for reporting an illegal act committed by the employer.
Wrongful termination can also happen when an employee is fired based on national origin, race, religion, gender, sexual orientation, pregnancy, disability or a medical condition.
