Is my job at risk if I ask a lawyer for advice?

Even though Florida is an “at will” state, there are protections against retaliation. For example, if an individual approaches their employer with concerns that they are not being compensated fairly and then the individual is fired a week later, the connection could be made that they were fired due to their complaint. This type of retaliation is against the law.

If you feel you have been fired illegally, the Orlando employment law attorneys at Burruezo & Burruezo, PLLC can help. Call us today at (407) 754-2904 to schedule a free consultation or contact us online.



Even though Florida is an at-will jurisdiction, which means an employer can fire you at any time, for any reason, at any moment in time, there are protections against retaliation. If someone raises an issue about the way they’re being paid, in terms of a wage and hour issue, they would be protected by the law against retaliation. For example, if someone were to go to their boss or go and see a lawyer about a wage and hour issue and they were fired a week later, you could make the connection that their termination was because they made a complaint. That would be against the law.
