Wrongful Termination

Wrongful Termination

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

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.

Employment Rights

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:

  • Whistleblowing
  • Objecting or refusing to participate in illegal activities
  • Making a workers' compensation claim
  • Workplace discrimination
  • Reporting or objecting to workplace discrimination
  • Pregnancy

“We were stressed out enough after the accident that cut our vacation short. I did not want to deal with insurance and doctor bills. LD&T took care of everything. We were able to focus on just getting better. THANK YOU!” - Kim K.
★★★★★
"Lusk, Drasites and Tolisano have been so helpful with one of the hardest times of my life after a car accident. Mark Drasites and his assistant Rebecca have kept me informed the entire way and put me at ease. They truly care for their clients and put your best interest first. They have helped me to get the best ending result possible and I would highly recommend them to anyone looking for someone to represent them." - Jennifer H.
★★★★★
"I will highly recommend this firm to anyone. I went to Bruce l Schiner and to morgan and morgan, both of them turned me away, and would not take my case. I got Mark Drasites card from my doctor and not only did they take my case, I got $20,000 when my case was done. Mr. Mark and Rebecca took very good care of me and were always on top of everything. I would use this firm again if anything happens and I will recommend them to everyone I know." - TL K
