What Does Wrongful Termination Mean?

Wrongful termination is a terminated employee’s claim that the firing breached an employment contract or some public law. Even though Florida is an at-will state, an employer cannot violate state or federal laws as the deciding factor for firing an employee.

Wrongful termination is an umbrella term that can involve numerous legal issues, including:

  • Discrimination
  • Breach of contract
  • Retaliation
  • Leave
  • Fraud

Employment Discrimination

Even though discrimination is illegal, employers still make decisions based on discrimination, leaving thousands affected every year. The U.S. Equal Employment Commission (EEOC) enforces federal laws making discrimination against an employee illegal. This includes discrimination based on a person’s:

  • Race
  • Color
  • Religion
  • Sex (including pregnancy, related conditions, gender identity, and sexual orientation)
  • National origin, age, disability, or genetic information

These laws also apply to work situations such as promotions, harassment, and training, as well as wages and benefits.

Title VII of the Civil Rights Act of 1964

Title VII makes discrimination based on race, color, religion, sex, and national origin illegal for employers.

Title VII also protects against pregnancy discrimination. If you were fired because of a current, past, or potential pregnancy, or have a medical condition related to pregnancy or childbirth, or breastfeeding, you could be protected by this federal law.

Once you share the details of your case with an attorney from our team, we can help guide you with the next steps to take.

Americans with Disabilities Act

ADA prohibits discrimination based on an employee’s disability and assures equal opportunities. Discrimination in the workplace can include unequal opportunities for training and promotions, pay, and activities, among termination.

Family and Medical Leave Act

FMLA protects eligible employees taking unpaid, job-protected leave for specific family and medical reasons. Being fired for taking extended leave to care for your family or yourself is another example of wrongful termination.

Fair Labor Standards Act

FLSA helps to ensure that employees are entitled to fair standards, including minimum wage, overtime payment, and recordkeeping. If an employer doesn’t want to pay your wages for the work you earned, that could be a violation of your rights.

There are many other reasons or situations that can also be classified as wrongful termination. Violation of employment agreements, breach of contract, and retaliation are also complex situations where a lawyer’s knowledge and expertise can be beneficial.

Fight for your rights and consult with a wrongful termination lawyer from our firm. Regardless of the reason you were fired, we provide support the best way we can and can fight for your rights.

Our Attorneys Serving Lake County Will Investigate Your Termination

Once we know the details of your case, we can begin our investigation and develop our plan of action. While we work on your case, we will:

  • Gather evidence to support your claims
  • Interview other employees and any connected personnel to your case
  • Request employment records, such as evaluations and reviews, schedules, paystubs, employee handbook, and your contract
  • Evaluate your termination form and any filed complaints while aligning information with documentation you can provide us.

Gathering any information or documents that can support your claim prior to meeting with a lawyer from our firm can help strengthen your case.

We Will Help You Take Action

After we complete our investigation, we will know how to best support you and begin taking action. It is important you talk with us as soon as possible as there are timelines we must follow when filing a complaint or a claim. The U.S. Equal Employment Opportunities Commission (EEOC) states two different timelines:

  • 180 days to file from termination if filing a complaint for workplace discrimination.
  • 300 days to file if the local or state government covers anti-discrimination law.

Working with a member of our team will help ensure you are following all guidelines, making deadlines, and completing and filing claims correctly.

You Could Recover Damages if You Suffered Losses

If you suffered losses because of your employer’s wrongful actions, you could recover damages. Some examples of monetary damages you could recover if you win a wrongful termination lawsuit are:

  • Lost Pay. You could receive the amount of pay if your employer had not fired you, including any earned, unpaid wages, or overtime.
  • Lost Benefits. Gathering information from medical and dental insurance, pension, 401K, stock, or profit-sharing can help quantify a dollar amount of your lost benefits.
  • Emotional Stress. Pain and suffering or emotional distress damages may be awarded if an employer acted extremely unfairly and you needed to seek help from a mental health professional.
  • And more if you qualify.
