Davie Wrongful Termination Lawyers

Find the right Wrongful Termination attorney in Davie, FL

In Florida, most employment is considered "at will". This form of employment follows the principle that either the employer or the employee may terminate the relationship at any point, for any reason. The only general exception in "at-will" employment arrangements is that the termination may not be done for reasons which violate the law.

Employment not falling in the "at will" category is subject to different limitations and requirements, so you should be sure to know the classification of your work setup. Typically, if your employment arrangement was for a set term, it is not "at will", and the employment can only be terminated according to procedure contained in the contract.

What are the Illegal Grounds for Terminating At Will Employment in Florida?

In a Florida at-will employment, discrimination is the most common unlawful ground for terminating an employee. Termination by an employer cannot be done on the basis of race, nationality, gender, or religion. Davie employers are further barred from firing at-will employees in order to retaliate against them for filing a legal discrimination claim or initiating an investigation of discrimination.

Furthermore, employers are prohibited by the Family and Medical Leave act from firing those employees who take leave in order to address family or medical concerns. Finally, employees are protected from being terminated by their employer for performing a legal obligation, exercising their legal rights, or for refusing to participate in an illegal act.

Life in Davie

Davie, Florida is a city filled with history. It was first named Zona. In 1909 a gentleman named Robert Parsell Davie, who was a developer, came into Zona and drained out the swamplands, which were filled with mosquitoes. The people of the city were so thankful that they renamed the city Davie after the developer. Davie is known to many as a "Western town," rather than a city because many people own horses and herd cattle.

Some popular attractions in Davie include the Flamingo Gardens, Miami Dolphins Training Facility, Bergeron Rodeo Grounds, Bamford Sports Complex, and Young At Art Museum.

Now, Davie has become more city-like, and it not just a place filled with horses and cattle. Davie, in fact, is home to many small law offices. Attorneys in Davie are very intelligent, and devoted to serving their community.

All in all, if you are looking for a small town with a lot of love, hospitality, and a legal force presence, Davie is the place to be!
