Options for Wrongfully Fired Employees
Victims of unlawful termination do have options, including filing a claim and pursuing a lawsuit. At Sconzo Law Office, P.A., our attorneys can look over the specifics of your claim for wrongful termination. We can then develop an effective legal strategy to best resolve your situation.
We represent employees who have been wrongfully terminated due to:
- Filing a worker’s compensation claim
- Discrimination on the basis of age, race, religion, sex, disability, national origin, sexual orientation, pregnancy, or a similar characteristic
- Refusal to take part in illegal activities
- Disputes over wages or hours worked
- Employee whistleblowing, for which the state of Florida has its own whistleblower laws
- Taking time off for family or medical leave
- Breach of contract, should the employee work under contract
- Testifying against an employer in cases where it was lawfully required
- Employers owing the employee overtime wages or lost wages
It is important to document potential evidence from texts, emails, written evaluations, and other documents and correspondence that may advance your case. This information will be vital to advancing your wrongful discharge claim. You may be eligible to pursue compensation for any harmful effects stemming from the incident.
