What is At Will Employment in Florida?

Wrongful discharge cases can be complex and challenging in Florida, since Florida is an at-will employment state. At-will employment means employers may hire or fire employees for virtually any or no reason. However, there are still laws that prohibit employment actions such as wrongful termination.

Both federal and state laws offer protection in cases involving discrimination, sexual harassment, missing wages, whistleblowing, and the FMLA. Employees also cannot be fired in violation of public policy. Additionally, certain workers are except from at-will employment if they agreed to an employment contract with stipulations regarding termination.

Options for Wrongfully Fired Employees

Victims of unlawful termination do have options, including filing a claim and pursing 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 a 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, or pregnancy
  • 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 and emails to written evaluations 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.
