We Help You Fight Back After An Upsetting Job Loss

Suddenly losing your job can be traumatic. In addition to loss of income, comes loss of long-term business relationships, your reputation and future earnings. Because Florida is an "at will" employment state, your employer can terminate your employment status for any reason or no reason. However, it is illegal for your employer to fire you for discriminatory or retaliatory reasons. You owe it to yourself to take it one step further to discover if you are a victim of wrongful termination.

If you believe your job termination was based on the status of your age, your color, your race, your religion, your gender identity, national origin or any other protected characteristic, or because you reported your employer for fraudulent activity, you can file a claim for wrongful termination. The first step is to contact an experienced employment law attorney to discuss your legal options.

At The Amlong Firm, our attorneys are well-versed in the important steps to take to remedy a wrongful termination case. Our firm has a long record of positive settlements and verdicts in favor of our clients when federal and state laws have been disregarded.

Key Factors Pointing To A Wrongful Termination

Proving that you were not simply fired "at will" but rather because of wrongful termination due to discrimination or retaliation can be complex. An employer may tell the court the termination was legal. However, they may have emailed someone in the company about their true motives that are discriminatory in nature. Obtaining such direct evidence can be difficult. More often, these cases revolve around circumstantial evidence, including:

  • Pregnant women who are terminated close to their due dates
  • Elderly employees who were terminated close to receiving or being eligible for pension/retirement benefits
  • Being fired for "poor performance" while exhibiting consistent, above average performance at the company
  • Employees over 40 years old fired or laid off, because the employer is getting rid of the job itself, only to find they were replaced by younger employees in a very similar "new position" that just opened up
  • An unexpected termination after an employee reports an incident of discrimination or tries to assert their rights in the workplace
  • Sudden and abrupt termination after an employee reports the employer's involvement in illegal activities or workplace safety hazards
  • Workers fired after filing a workers' compensation claim

A combination of these can be enough circumstantial evidence for a wrongful termination case. Sometimes there may be a paper trail of these issues. Your evidence can include your performance reviews, internal emails, coworker statements and your statement of the timeline of events.
