California residents who have worked for employers that made being at their jobs intolerable, resulting in them ultimately quitting, may just think that they were with companies that were not a good fit for them.

This is called constructive termination and it is illegal.
There is nothing easy about being a nurse at a hospital. The hours are long, the number of patients assigned to each nurse can be overwhelming and the staff issues that arise can be a lot to deal with. Recently, one hospital in California has come under fire after two of its former nurses filed wrongful termination and discrimination lawsuits against the facility. If there is any validity to what these nurses are claiming occurred at this establishment, they may be able to successfully recover monetary damages.
