A Philadelphia man is suing his former employer, Hampton Inn – Pine Grove, alleging discrimination, retaliation, unpaid wages, violation of Workers’ Compensation acts and wrongful termination.
The man filed a complaint on Jan. 30 alleging that the employer discharged him from employment for raising a concern about a company policy.
According to the complaint, the man suffered damages from being required to report to work earlier than his scheduled shift without being paid for those hours. He holds his former employer responsible because they retaliated against him by terminating his employment.
Florida is an at-will employment state, which means employers can fire workers for any reason except those that are based on discrimination or in violation of an employment contract. Just because Florida is an at-will employment state does not mean workers do not have rights. In fact, if you were fired for unlawful or illegal reasons, you may be able to take action against your employer.
