Wrongful Termination: Could You Have Been Fired Illegally?


Businesses today are under increasing pressure to demonstrate profitability, which many do by reducing headcount. If you feel you have been a victim of wrongful termination, you may have legal recourse in Florida.

Wrongful termination may apply if you:

Have a written contract – while most employment is "at will" – meaning an employee can be fired for any reason at any time – having a formal contract may entitle you to additional protections.

Have an implied contract – if you have an agreement with your employer based on things your employer has said or done, this could also void the "at will" status of your employment. However, this can be difficult to prove, particularly in Florida.
