Can wrongful termination occur in Florida?

There is no such thing as wrongful termination in Florida. Florida is an “at will” state, meaning an employer can fire an employee for anything that is not a protected characteristic. These protected characteristics include race, gender, national origin, and religion, among others.

Transcription

In Florida there is no such thing as wrongful termination. Florida is an at will state. What that means is that an employer can fire an employee for anything as long as it’s not because of a protective characteristic. When someone says wrongful termination it’s my understanding that they’re referring to being fired because of race, national original, gender, religion, the protective characteristic.
