Florida Wrongful Termination

If you were fired from your job and are wondering whether your employer was justified in letting you go, you’re not alone. The people who get dismissed often don’t deserve it, but at what point is a termination grounds for legal action?

In Florida, employment is “at-will,” meaning an employer can generally end a work relationship at any time, with or without reason or warning. However, there are exceptions to this standard that you should be aware of.

  • What Is Wrongful Termination?

    To be wrongfully terminated is to be fired for a reason that is against the law. If your employer dismisses you for discriminatory reasons, for exercising certain workplace rights, or in breach of an employment contract, you may have grounds for a wrongful termination lawsuit. The labor and employment attorneys at Morgan & Morgan’s Florida offices can help you assess your legal options.

  • What Are Some Examples of Wrongful Termination in Florida?

    Because Florida is an at-will employment state, employers have significant discretion in firing decisions. However, state and federal labor laws afford workers certain protections. You may have been wrongfully terminated if any of the following situations led to your dismissal.

    • You were let go due to your race, age, sex, pregnancy, national origin, disability, or another protected characteristic.
    • You were fired because you filed a workers’ compensation claim for your workplace injury.
    • You were dismissed for objecting to overtime violations (e.g., your employer misclassified you as exempt to avoid paying you overtime).
    • You reported, objected to, or refused to participate in an unlawful act and were let go because of it.
    • You were fired without cause, even though you have a contract that states you can only be terminated with cause.
    • You were dismissed for taking leave you are entitled to under the Family and Medical Leave Act (FMLA).
