Employees in any industry in California have rights. Although many are at-will workers, meaning that resignations and terminations may happen at will, employees are protected from wrongful termination.

An employee of a company would like to think that, if a safety issue is reported in good faith, the company will take steps to address and ameliorate the issue.

Reasons for wrongful termination in California

Jobs come and jobs go. Sometimes an employee decides to leave a job, and sometimes the employer gives an employee the boot. In an at-will employment state like California, both the employer and the employee can terminate the employment at any time. The at-will designation may make it seem like there can be no case for wrongful termination, since an employer can let a person go at any time. However, there are some protected statuses, and it is true that an employer cannot end the employment for just any reason.
