At-Will Employment

Florida is an “at-will” employment state, meaning employers may terminate an employee for any or no reason at all, granted that reason is not in violation of state and federal employment laws. Employees, too, may leave for any or no reason.

It is perfectly legal for your employer to terminate you with no warning, as long as the termination is not because of your race, skin color, national origin, religion, sex, disability, age, citizenship status, genetic information, marital status, HIV/AIDS diagnosis, or sickle cell trait. Additionally, your employer may not fire you for retaliatory purposes, such as for whistleblowing or reporting a violation to the human resources department.
