Discrimination in the workplace comes in many forms. Although Florida is an “at will” state and employers may terminate employees for any reason or no reason at all, employers are not legally allowed to discriminate based on race, ethnicity, gender, sexual orientation, religion, age or disability. Both Federal and Florida State law makes it illegal to “discriminat[e] when it comes to any aspect of employment, including hiring, firing, pay, job assignments, promotions, layoff, training, fringe benefits, and any other term or condition of employment.”
We understand how difficult it may be to confront an employer and take legal action. However, keep in mind that a victim has usually only 300 days to seek justice and file an action for workplace discrimination.

We will provide you with a confidential consultation and help you assess your workplace discrimination case.
