Wrongful Termination Attorney

If you are the victim of wrongful termination, take action!

Sometimes when employees are fired, they often feel as if they were wrongfully terminated. Florida follows the employment-at-will standard. This means that an employer can terminate an employee at any time, for any reason, with or without notice, regardless of whether the employer has a good reason, a bad reason or even no reason at all to terminate you. In most cases, there is nothing an employee can do to argue or dispute a termination. There are some instances where this standard is not used. The three most common exceptions to the employment-at-will standard include:

    1) The presence of an employment CONTRACT;

                                                2) DISCRIMINATION against the employee by the employer; and

                                                3) RETALIATION against the employee by the employer.
