Even when employment is "at will" there are still rules and regulations that employers must follow when terminating an employee. When a termination occurs as revenge for lawful actions an employee has taken, a suit for wrongful termination is in order.

When It's Not OK For An Employer To Terminate An Employee
In an at-will employment arrangement, an employer can terminate an employee for nearly any reason. There are some specific exceptions, including termination for reporting discrimination, taking time off under the Family and Medical Leave Act or becoming pregnant.
When someone is discriminated against, sexually harassed, or chooses to act as a whistleblower, an employer may think the easy way out is to terminate the "bad apple." Besides being wrong morally, that action is illegal and they need to be held accountable.
