Wrongful Termination? Contact our Central Florida Employment Law AttorneysUnder Florida law, an individual can be fired for any reason. Employees in Florida who are employed without contracts are considered to be "at-will." This means that they can be dismissed at the discretion of their employer at any time and for any reason. The federal and state employment discrimination laws essentially provide an exception to the employment at-will doctrine.

Employment discrimination is the unlawful use of age, race, gender, color, national origin or religion to deny an individual either an opportunity to work or to work under the same conditions as others.  One must be able to prove that:

An essential requirement to pursuing an action for employment discrimination is the filing of a complaint with either the Equal Employment Opportunity Commission (EEOC) or the ("Florida Commission on Human Relations (FCHR)").

Retaliation is a form of revenge against an employee who had previously taken steps seeking to enforce his or her rights protected under state or federal law. The laws prohibiting discrimination in the work place also prohibit any retaliatory action being taken against an employee by an employer because the employee has asserted rights or made complaints under those laws. So, even if a complaint of discrimination against an employer is later found to be invalid or without merit, the employee cannot be penalized in retaliation for having made such a complaint if the employee made the complaint as a means of seeking to enforce what the employee believed in good faith to be his or her lawful rights.

In order to prevail on a claim of retaliation, the employee must prove by a preponderance of the evidence:

Workplace discrimination and workplace retaliation issues sometimes lead to an employee being fired. Although Florida is an "at-will" employment state, an employer may not terminate an employee for reporting forms of discrimination, harassment, hostile work environment conditions, or any other lawfully protected employment circumstance. The termination of an employee under these conditions may be considered retaliation on the part of an employer, in which you have legal rights.
