Florida Wrongful Termination Lawyers

Were you illegally fired from your job in Florida? We’re here to give you a voice and help you stand up for your employment rights. 

Are you a resident of Tampa Bay or the surrounding region who was wrongfully terminated from your job based on your age, race, national origin, gender or color? Do you believe that you were fired because you were pregnant or because you complained about experiencing harassment or discrimination? You’re not alone.

Each year in the state of Florida, more than 6,000 individual charges of wrongful termination from a job are brought against employers – only the state of Texas exceeds this many wrongful termination cases. Floridians deserve to have this type of concern taken very seriously. It’s illegal for an employer to discriminate against you and terminate you unlawfully.

Unfortunately, it can be quite challenging to prove wrongful termination in the state of Florida. These cases are complex and may require extensive documentation. You’ll need the help of an experienced wrongful termination lawyer who can help you prove your case.

Under Florida law, you can make a claim of wrongful termination against an employer under certain conditions:

  • Discrimination occurred based on a protected category like age, race or sex
  • There has been a breach of contract, if a contract is involved
  • You were terminated while taking a legal leave for bereavement, illness or disability
  • You are owed and have been denied a paycheck, back pay or overtime pay
  • You were terminated due to making a workers’ compensation claim
  • Your employer discriminated against you based on a complaint you made about illegal conditions, harassment or workplace discrimination, or because you refused to participate in such activities

Don’t let these requirements scare you away from filing a legal claim against an employer who has wrongfully terminated you. Here in the Tampa Bay area, Kemp, Ruge & Green is the legal partner who helps you stand up to employers who break the law.
