I work full-time for a very large solar vendor in Southern California, wrongful termination case?

Firstly, the work I do for the company is technically illegal. By law, they should have a license or be paying a contractor to do what I do for the company. They could get in serious trouble with the CSLB if the License Board knew. So that’s my ace in the hole.

I go to customers homes install “adders”, smart-home technology that are “bonus” or “promo items” for going solar with the company. (I am employed by a solar VENDOR, not the contracted/licensed installation company.)
Lately the company has been demanding that while at the customer home installing smarthome “adders” I gather from them a 5-star reviews on Facebook and Yelp for company itself, and this the entire solar installation process. If I do not basically coorce enough 5-star reviews from these customers, I am facing disciplinary action and possible termination.

This is difficult for me because I have been with the company as it grew from 12 employees to over 120 in the last 3 years. (And planned expansions to over 4 major cities this year) I was told stock options would be available to me, and yet all I have received in the last 3 years is a 2$ raise.

They have lots of money from being shady.....
If I can get proof that they are doing this, do I have a case?
