Both federal and state laws protect Florida employees from being wrongfully terminated for reporting unlawful or unethical behavior at their workplaces. This article will focus on two state laws that protect Florida private sector workers and Florida public sector workers.

What is hidden harassment?

Sexual harassment is an awful scourge that has affected American society for far too long. Fortunately, nearly all large companies have adopted zero-tolerance sexual harassment policies. Nevertheless, with all the attention on sexual harassment, other forms of harassment often go unchecked, and these forms of harassment can be just as harmful.

Workplace discrimination concerns are mounting

Anyone who has been watching the news lately has seen issues relating to racial relations in the United States reaching what appears to be a climax. The stress and tension in the air is so thick that you could cut it with a knife. However, we all continue to go to our jobs every day, and we continue the best we can to fulfill our work responsibilities, no matter our race, gender, sexual orientation, sex or creed.

What should a workplace anti-discrimination policy include?

One of the best ways to prevent workplace discrimination in Florida businesses involves the setting up of an anti-discrimination policy. Having such a policy in place will allow employees to feel safe that -- even if they do become the victims of discrimination on the job -- they will be able to file a complaint without fear of reprisal, and that a plan of action exists for how to manage the complaint.

What damages can I claim in a wrongful termination suit?

If you have been wrongfully terminated from your job -- either through retaliation after reporting an instance of sexual harassment or as a result of unfair treatment for some other reason -- you may be able to pursue a wrongful termination lawsuit. During this lawsuit, you will want to ask for a variety of financial remedies for damages that you have suffered as a result of the wrongful termination.
