I was aware that new supervisor had unethical (not illegal) practices not according to company policy. I had been the HR Director of this institution for 1.7 years. I informed the supervisor of company policy. In retaliation, he terminated me without any warning, with immediate effect, and locked me out of company email. The termination letter said I was fired for cause (6 reasons given that I was never informed before). Before this termination, I had a spotless and a progressive upward mobility track record of 25 years with other sister institutions of the same not-for-profit organization. This termination has led to severe mental trauma and anguish, public humiliation within this large organization and has made it very difficult for me to seek similar positions for the past 7 months because I am not actively employed. My employment is at-will (California) but can I sue them for character defamation since the termination was for cause which are untrue?
