California is a “right-to-work” state – which means that an employer can usually terminate an employee, at any time, without having to provide a particular reason. However, there are California laws to protect workers from certain “wrongful termination” situations like whistle blowing, retaliation, and discrimination. There is also protection for situations where the termination is a breach of contract. Thus, even in a “right-to-work” state, there are many situations that could constitute an unlawful termination of employment.
