Trying to find a job is stressful enough without having been wrongly terminated. Even though Florida is an "at-will" state that allows an employer to fire you for any or no reason, you're still afforded certain protections under the law.
A wrongful termination attorney from our law firm can help you determine your next steps so you receive fair treatment and compensation. Contact us today for more information.
Recognizing Wrongful Termination Whistleblower Act
You cannot be fired in retaliation for whistleblowing. If you were recently fired for providing information to the government about your employer's illegal activities, a wrongful termination attorney can help you understand your rights.
Constructive discharge is when an employer makes your life so miserable that no reasonable person could continue working. If you were forced to quit your job because of a hostile work environment, our wrongful termination lawyers can help you seek damages for lost wages. For example, it's illegal for an employer to make your work environment intolerable in response to a sexual harassment complaint.
Under employment law, you are expected to try to fix workplace issues before quitting. Otherwise, you may not be eligible to receive compensation for wrongful termination. Our employment attorneys can help you prove that you were wrongly fired due to:
- Objecting or refusing to participate in illegal activities
- Making a workers' compensation claim
- Workplace discrimination
- Reporting or objecting to workplace discrimination
