Was My Contract Violated?
Florida is considered an “at-will” employment state. This means that the employer can discharge an employee for virtually any reason, as long as that reason is not discriminatory or otherwise in violation of a myriad of other state and federal laws. Sometimes, an employer and employee will enter in an employment agreement that will guarantees an employee’s right to work for a certain period of time under stated conditions in the contract. If an employer violates the terms of the contract or otherwise violates the law in discharging an employee, there are a number of legal issues that need to be addressed to secure either the employee or employers rights.
