This essay reviews cases under state law involving wrongful termination of employment in the USA, because an employee chose to follow ethical principles of the employee's profession. Unlike employment law based on the Bill of Rights in the U.
Constitution, which only applies to government employees, the principles in this essay are applicable to all employees, even employees of for-profit and non-profit organizations. This essay is intended only to present general information about an interesting topic in law and is not legal advice for your specific problem.
There is no need to cite those cases, because: Because of my intentional lack of citations in this essay to the mainstream law of at-will employment, a reader might obtain the mistaken impression that the law in this essay is mainstream law.

These limited public-policy exceptions in the majority of states do not create rights of freedom of speech for learned professionals, nor do they create rights of learned professionals to uphold high ethical standards.
The above public-policy exceptions are mentioned only as a foundation of the law that is discussed in the remainder of this essay. In some states this cause of action is a tort, in other states it is a breach of contract action. Citations to cases are found in my companion essay on the history of at-will employment in the USA.
In many states, the public-policy exceptions have been created by the legislature in statute s that specifically gives the ex-employee the right to sue for wrongful discharge.
In order to shorten this long essay, I have moved this detailed discussion to my companion essay on the history of at-will employment in the USA.
Just as bad, unjust or unethical decisions by management are legally protected. As a result of judicial reluctance in this area, even in states which do permit the tort of wrongful discharge of at-will employees for public policy reasons, the tort offers little or no protection to most employees.
