In California, most jobs are at-will jobs. That means that an employer can fire the employee and the employee can also choose to quit. However, just because the job is at-will it does not give the employer the right to retaliate against an employee.
Why would employers retaliate?
For reporting or refusing to participate in illegal actions
For complaining about unsafe conditions
For complaining about unfair pay
