The term “wrongful termination” is generally used to describe a situation where an employee is fired in violation of the law.
Although Florida is an employment “at-will” state, a number of statutes and civil laws make it unlawful for an employer to terminate an employee under certain circumstances.
For example, Florida law prohibits terminating an employee because:
- Whistle blowing
- The employee attends jury duty.
- Complaining of discrimination.
- Terminated by workers compensation retaliation
- For refusing to take a polygraph
