Legal Question in Criminal Law in California

I interviewed for a job with a recruiter that works for an employment agency. I divulged my criminal history during the on-boarding process while filling out my NDA and contracts (not initial interview). Essentially, I was hired by a company that the agency staffs for. After I was brought on board and worked for a week, the recruiter decided to terminate me when my official report came in (as if she wasn't already informed of my history). She condescending told me that I was "smart" and had great "education", but did not explain further about why I was being fired other than my criminal history (one felony; assault case from 10 years ago). Is there anything I can do from a legal stand point?

I don't know about a civil suit. For that you will have to ask on a civil litigation page. But if you haven't already you ought to talk to a lawyer about a 1203.4 expungement. If you were not sent to prison you may be eligible. If it is granted you can then say on most job application that you have not been convicted.
