Unless you can prove that your termination for being out of balance is a pretext for termination based on race, gender, or some other protected class, then you have no case.

You are in general 'at will' in CA, and as a back employee specifically subject to termination any time. Plus, they stated 'good cause' for termination, beyond 'at will'.
