Wrongful Termination Defense in Tampa
Employment in the state of Florida is “at will” for both the employer and the employee meaning the employer can terminate the employment at any time for any reason and the employee can choose to leave a job at any time. Nonetheless, when a termination is necessary, employers must be sure they are terminating legally.
What Constitutes Wrongful Termination?
In the absence of a valid contract, terminating an employee based on discriminating factors such as race, age, gender, religion, or disability is prohibited. It is also illegal for an employer to terminate an employee in retaliation for filing a claim against the employer of any sort. There are exceptions to this law, this is why it is best to contact an attorney to get guidance on your specific situation.
