Who Is Protected Under California Labor Law? California’s Fair Employment and Housing Act (FEHA) expands upon the protections detailed in 1964’s Civil Rights Act with specific protections for groups seen as particularly vulnerable to discrimination and harassment in the workplace.

However, workers who believe they were fired under fallacious circumstances still have ways they can fight back. For example, if a supervisor fires you for a specific reason, and then that reason turns out to be false, that may be a case for wrongful termination.
