Do you have an employment legal matter concerning discrimination, wrongful termination or harassment?
While it is always difficult and upsetting to be terminated from a job, the emotional distress associated with being laid off or fired is amplified when the job loss is unlawful. If you feel as though you have been wrongfully terminated by your employer, contact a Florida employment attorney at Bogin, Munns & Munns today. Wrongful employee termination claims can often go hand in hand with discrimination or harassment accusations.
A “wrongful termination” is one in which an employer has discharged or laid off an employee in violation of a legal right of the employee. Illegal reasons for employee termination include, but are not limited to:
- firing in violation of federal and state anti-discrimination laws
- firing as a form of sexual harassment
- firing in violation of labor laws
- firing in retaliation for the employee’s having filed a complaint or claim against the employer
If you have been laid off or wrongfully fired based on an unlawful reason, you may be entitled to compensation for your loss. In addition, if you are unsure whether or not you are eligible for unemployment compensation, our attorneys can contact Florida’s unemployment office to determine your eligibility and, depending on your situation, help you make an appeal if your claim is denied
