Thank you for your question. I look forward to working with you to provide you the information you are seeking for educational purposes only.
Under CA law, employment is at will and the employer may set rates of pay and promote or transfer or terminate employees for no reason at all or for any reason other than solely based on age/race/sex/disability/national origin and the employee has no recourse. So, if they have taken any action against you based only on your age/race/sex/disability/national origin, then you have a claim to file for discrimination with the Office of Fair Employment and Housing or the EEOC. If one of those reasons was not the only reason that your employer took the action, then legally I am afraid there is nothing you can do about this.
