California is an at-will employment state and, therefore, a large number of employees can be terminated by their employers at any time and for any reason, or for no reason at all. Regardless, at-will employees do receive the protection of a number of Federal and State employment laws that regulate the workplace. At-will employees can sue their employers for wrongful termination under some circumstances, such as when the employer’s termination violates anti-discrimination and anti-harassment statutes or retaliates against an employee for engaging in protected activities.
