Under 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 a “protected class” such as age, race, gender, color, national origin or religion to fail or refuse to hire or to discharge an individual or otherwise discriminate against an individual with respect to compensation, terms, conditions, or privileges of employment. One must be able to prove that:
- He or she is a member of a protected class;
- He or she suffered a tangible adverse employment action, i.e. failure to be hired, fired, decrease in pay, etc.;
- A causal link between the protected class and adverse employment action;
- As a result damages were suffered.
An essential requirement to pursuing most 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 any 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.
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.
