Can You Be Fired Without Reason in Florida?
Florida is an at-will state when it comes to employment. This means that an employer can fire an employee for virtually any reason, or for no reason at all. However, this doesn't mean you have no protections. In terminating your position at the company, your employer cannot commit wrongful termination.
Wrongful termination occurs when an employer fires an employee:
- Due to the employee’s actual or perceived age, gender, pregnancy, nationality, religious beliefs, political beliefs, race, disability, marital status, or sexual orientation
- As retaliation for objecting to, refusing to participate in, or reporting discrimination, sexual harassment, wage & hour issues, or other employer/employee misconduct
- For taking time off work under the Family & Medical Leave Act (FMLA)
- For filing a workers’ compensation claim
- For requesting fair wages or compensation
- For testifying against an employer in court, if subpoenaed
- In breach of an employment contract
