In California, employers can generally hire and fire employees at will, but there are certain exceptions that constitute a wrongful termination. If you have been fired from your job and you feel your employer may have violated the law in terminating your employment, it is important to talk to a knowledgeable employment lawyer as soon as possible.

Employers cannot lawfully terminate employees because of their race, religion, gender, age, disability or other protected characteristic.
It is also unlawful to fire an employee because he or she blew the whistle on illegal workplace practices.
