By Your Side Throughout Your Wrongful Termination Suit
Florida, like most states in the U.S., is an at-will state, which allows employers to release employees from their positions without providing a warning or reason. Employers do not need to justify terminating a position. However, they cannot fire a worker an unlawful reason. If you believe that your position has been wrongfully terminated, you deserve justice.
Filing wrongful termination claims in court without a legal background can be difficult. When your future earnings are at risk, it is crucial to resolve this matter as efficiently as possible. I, Michelle Cohen Levy, understand the intricate nature of employment disputes. I am an experienced employment law attorney and skilled trial lawyer. I help Broward County employees navigate the legal process when they have been wrongfully terminated.
Representing Workers Who Have Been Illegally Fired
When you file an internal or external complaint, the law protects you from retaliatory acts, such as docking your pay, passing you over for a promotion or assigning difficult tasks as a punishment.
I represent clients who have been wrongfully terminated after they have filed:
- Sexual harassment suits for hostile work environment or quid pro quo harassment
- Discrimination claims based on sex, race, age, religion, disability and other forms of discrimination
- Wage claims for unpaid wages or overtime pay
- Family and Medical Leave Act (FMLA) requests
- Employee misclassification claims
At my Fort Lauderdale firm, I practice business and employment law. I use my strong background in these fields when I analyze my clients’ employment contracts, policies and procedures for compliance issues.
If your employer violated the terms of your agreement or included prohibited terms in your agreement, I can present a persuasive argument in court.
