Discrimination

Discrimination occurs when someone treats you differently and less favorably because of your sex, age, race, religion, national origin, family status, military status, sexual orientation, or disability.

Florida is an at will employment state.  In an at will employment state employers can change your position or terminate you without a reason.  There are certain cases when a termination can be prohibited.  These are typically found when there is a violation of your rights because of a constitutionally protected area such as age, sex, religion, and national origin.

It is difficult to file a claim against your employer is no reason for the termination was given.  However, particular things may lead to evidence suggesting your termination was wrongful.
