"Injustice anywhere is a threat to justice everywhere."
Because most employees do not have written employment contracts, the majority of workers throughout the United States are “at-will” employees. This means that under common law, both the employer and employee have the freedom to end the working relationship at any time and for any reason. However, State and Federal employment discrimination laws, as well as local ordinances, exist to prevent workplace discrimination based upon an employee’s age, race, religion, gender/sex (including pregnancy), national origin, disability, medical condition, and other characteristics specifically enumerated by law.
The Miami employment law attorneys at the Law Office of Keith M. Stern, P.A. regularly represent employees and management before State and Federal courts as well as before government agencies in various administrative proceedings arising from claims of discrimination. In general, victims of workplace discrimination in Florida have to file a Charge of Discrimination with the U.S. Equal Employment Opportunity Commission (EEOC) or Florida Commission on Human Relations, so taking prompt action to protect your rights is vital.
