Discrimination & Wrongful Termination
Florida does not recognize the concept of “wrongful termination.” Florida is an “at will” employment state, meaning an employee can be fired at any time for any reason, as long as it is not an illegal reason. Illegal reasons include whistleblower violations and anti-discrimination law violations.
Protected characteristics under anti-discrimination laws include:
- Equal Pay/Compensation
- Genetic Information
- National Origin
- Sexual Harassment
- Sexual Orientation and Gender Identity
We represent employers in defense of these cases. Contact the Orlando discrimination law attorneys at Burruezo & Burruezo, PLLC. Call us today at (407) 754-2904 to schedule a consultation.
