As a Miami-Dade County employment law firm we are aware of the finer points of Florida’s employment laws. Florida is an at-will employment state. At will employments means the employer or employee may end the employment relationship at any time. As such, an employer may fire you for any reason or no reason at all. However, an employee may be wrongfully terminated by an employer if the termination violates federal or state anti-discrimination laws or is done in retaliation of making a lawful discrimination complaint or participating in an investigation. Another example of a wrongful termination is a breach of an employment contract. Here are some examples of wrongful termination:
Per Federal law, an employer may not discriminate against someone based upon race, color, national origin, disability, sex or pregnancy. In addition to the Federal laws, in Florida an employer is in violation of The Florida Civil Human Rights Act if an employer discriminates on the basis of an employee’s race, color, religion, sex, national origin, age (over 40), handicap, or marital status.
It is illegal for an employer to fire an employee for making a lawful complaint or engaging in activities protected by the law. Retaliation occurs when an employer takes an adverse action against an employee for making a lawful act. Such adverse actions made by an employer include: demotion, reduction of hours, negative/unsatisfactory evaluation, write-ups and termination. These retaliatory actions are deemed illegal under both the Federal and Florida state law. Let us be your employee rights advocates in South Florida.
A violation of Whistleblower occurs when an employee reports a violation of the law to his or her employer and the employer harasses or retaliates against the employee. Such action is illegal under Federal and Florida state law.
When two parties enter into a work agreement and one party does not perform his or her contractual obligation, there may be an action for wrongful termination and a breach of contract claim. For example, an individual enters an agreement with a company to perform at an event. However, prior to the event the company decides not to pay the individual and informs the individual that their services are no longer needed. The individual has a claim for breach of contract due to a wrongful termination.
As Florida contractual obligations attorneys our firm also handles other areas of labor and employment law which include:
