Were you wrongfully terminated? Stand up for your rights in court

Wrongful terminations happen often in the state of Florida. What doesn't happen often is a worker who actually holds his ex-employer legally accountable for a wrongful termination. Indeed, numerous instances of inappropriate job loss sail past the radar of the courts because the victims of the wrongful termination don't know that they've been harmed unjustly.

Was your wrongful termination a violation of public policy?

Sometimes an employee's firing represents a legal violation of public policy. Public policy laws relate to things that the public perceives as ethically inappropriate and morally reprehensible. Public policy laws relate to ethics and morality, so sometimes they are interpreted in different ways from attorney to attorney, judge to judge and state to state.

If you see something untoward happening at the office, and you know it's wrong, you do not have to stay silent for fear of losing your job.

The whistleblower act can be used to help Florida employees -- who lose their jobs because they did the right thing -- seek financial restitution and justice in court.
