Miami Wrongful Termination Attorney
You Have Protections Under At-Will Employment
Unless there is a written contract in place, most employees are presumed to be “employees at will” in Florida. That means that they are free to quit at any time for any reason, and that employers are allowed to fire them for any reason or for no reason at all. There are important exceptions to at-will employment, however, and employers cannot violate state and federal laws in termination or during the course of employment.
At the Law Office of William M. Julien, P.A., in South Florida, our attorneys represent employees in wrongful termination cases in Miami and across Miami-Dade County. We have more than 25 years of employment law experience and have successfully handled wrongful termination cases for our clients. If you believe you have been a victim of wrongful termination, it is important to assert your rights.
We Can Uncover The Real Reason You Were Terminated
To evaluate your case, our firm will thoroughly analyze the circumstances of your termination or layoff and determine whether it was the result of an adverse employment action. Wrongful termination may have occurred if the termination was because of:
- Discrimination based on race, color, national origin, religion, gender, age, disability, veteran status or another protected class
- Filing a workers’ comp claim
- Taking medical or family leave guaranteed by the Family and Medical Leave Act (FMLA)
- Blowing the whistle on unlawful activity by the company
- Complaining about discrimination or supporting others’ discrimination claims
- Complaining about safety violations, health concerns or unsafe working conditions
- Filing complaints about unpaid overtime or other wage and hour issues
- Supporting a union
- The employer wanting to avoid unemployment insurance obligations
