Have You Been Fired For Reporting Your Employer?
In California, which is an at-will employment state, employers are allowed to terminate employees with or without cause. Employers cannot, however, terminate employees due to discrimination on the basis of gender, religion, sexual orientation, etc. They also cannot terminate employees who report instances of discrimination in the workplace or violations of state or federal regulations to their respective agencies.
