Influential Contract Disputes Attorney Resolving Issues For Tampa Employment Law Clients
All employment contracts are legally binding documents, and it is not uncommon for the terms included to be misconstrued, misunderstood or downright ignored. If you have signed a contract for hire, a noncompete or severance agreement, or another workplace-specific contract and feel it has been violated or breached, attorney Craig Berman can help you take the right course of action to rectify the situation.
Florida is an “at-will” employment state, meaning employers may terminate an employee for any or no reason at all, granted that that reason is not in violation of state or federal employment laws. Employees, too, may leave for any or no reason.
It is perfectly legal for your employer to terminate you with no warning as long as the termination is not because of your race, skin color, national origin, religion, sex, disability, age, citizenship status, genetic information, marital status, HIV/AIDS diagnosis or sickle cell trait. Additionally, your employer may not fire you for retaliatory purposes, such as for whistleblowing or reporting a violation to the human resources department.
