In addition to statutes prohibiting discrimination, the law protects employees from being fired because they refused to participate in, or protested employer activity that offends other laws. For example, if you learned your employer was making false charges on customer credit cards, and objected to that, and were fired, you were terminated “in violation of public policy”. The general term used in the court systems is wrongful termination. The law offers you protection against adverse actions for that sort of reason, but you must preserve your rights by taking legal action.
