Under Florida law, an individual can be fired for any reason. Employees in Florida who are employed without contracts are considered to be “at-will,” meaning that they can be dismissed at the discretion of their employer at any time and for any reason. The federal and state employment discrimination laws essentially provide an exception to the employment at-will doctrine.

Employment discrimination is the unlawful use of age, race, gender, color, national origin or religion to deny an individual either an opportunity to work or to work under the same conditions as others.

One must be able to prove that:

  • They are a member of a protected class;

  • Discrimination was evident in the terms or conditions of employment;

  • As a result of a wrongful termination damages were suffered;

Additionally, a wrongful termination claim may be sought against an employer if the termination of your employment was the result of:

  • An act of retaliation for a previous employment law claim;

  • An act of retaliation for reporting unacceptible and unlawful actions by other employees, manageent, or owners of the business;

  • An act of retaliation for a previous whistle blower incident.

If you choose to legally seek a wrongful termination dispute claim, make sure your legal rights are protected by seeking the legal advice of an experienced Orlando wrongful termination attorney & lawyer. Contact Budgen Law, today by calling 407.481.2888.

In order to prevail on a claim of retaliation, the employee must prove by a preponderance of the evidence:

  • That he or she engaged in statutorily protected activity, that is, that he or she in good faith asserted claims or complaints of discrimination prohibited by state or federal law;

  • That an adverse employment action then occurred;

  • That the adverse employment action was causally related to the employee's statutorily protected activities;

  • That the employee suffered damages as a proximate or legal result of such adverse employment action.
