You can fight back against wrongful termination in Florida

Miami, Florida, residents who have been unlawfully terminated may feel as if they have no recourse, but that is not the case. Over the last few decades, wrongful termination has gained a lot of attention in America. While it remains a shadowy area of the law in some cases, there are some steps victims can take to once again be made whole.

Like most states, Florida employment relationships are presumed to be "at-will" which means that either party can terminate the employment at any time. However, at-will employment does not mean that an employer can fire an employee illegally. While extremely difficult to prove without legal counsel, wrongfully-terminated employees can take legal action if their termination occurred under several conditions. Here are a few examples:

-- Termination involved sexual harassment

-- Termination involved retaliation for reporting an employer's unlawful conduct

-- Termination occurred because of discrimination

-- Termination occurred in breach of an employment contract

-- Termination involved the filing of a workers' compensation claim

-- Termination occurred because the employee refused to break the law

If you believe you have been fired in violation of the law, we urge you to seek out legal advice immediately. It is important to take action as early as possible and the first step is discussing the case with an experienced attorney. From there, the attorney can review your case and offer knowledgeable advice about how to proceed with your wrongful termination claim.
