Although the law in many States, including Florida, is “employment at will,” which means that you are employed “at the will” of your employer such that your employment may, lawfully, be terminated at any time for any reason – including a “good reason,” a “bad reason, or “no reason at all” – it is illegal for an employer to take an adverse employment action (i.e., a demotion, termination, etc.) against an employee based on any characteristic protected by local, State or Federal law.
