3 types of wrongful termination

Did you recently lose your job, but the circumstances of your termination don't seem to make sense? Perhaps you suspect that you were terminated in a manner that doesn't Conform with Florida state law and you suspect you may be able to pursue a wrongful termination claim.

Here are three of the most common types of wrongful termination. Do any of these sound like the circumstances under which you were fired?

You were fired because of discrimination: State and federal anti-discrimination laws protect individuals from being treated differently on the basis of their skin color, race, national origin, disability status, sex and other protected statuses. If you were terminated for discriminatory reasons, it could be wrongful termination.

You were fired in retaliation for reporting sexual harassment: When you make a complaint about unlawful discrimination or harassment that you're experiencing on the job, your employer cannot terminate you in retaliation just to keep you quiet. This would be wrongful termination.

You lost your job in a way that violated your employment agreement: Whether you entered into a formally-written or oral employment agreement, your employer cannot terminate you in a way that violates this agreement.

Do you suspect that your termination was unlawful? Our law firm is available to review the facts of your case to determine whether you may be able to initiate a wrongful termination lawsuit. Just keep in mind that a statute of limitations likely applies to your potential claim. This means that there is a limited amount of time within which you can pursue a lawsuit. After the time period specified in the statute has ended, you will be forever barred from taking action.
