Transcript:

Even though Florida is recognized as being an at-will employment state, meaning that your employer can take any kind of action that they want to regarding your employment as it relates to hiring, firing, disciplinary action, as long as it’s not discriminatory, employees do still have the right to work in a place that’s free from discrimination. This means that an employer can’t make employment decisions based on protected traits such as your national origin, your gender, a disability or take retaliatory action against you if you’ve engaged in certain activities such as whistle blowing, complaining or objecting to violations of law, rule or regulations in the work place.

To have a better understanding about what your rights might be as an employee in an at-will employment state, it’s important that you do seek consultation from an employment lawyer who can further advise on those rights.
