Have you recently been fired? Don’t be too quick to assume you have no legal claims against your former employer, regardless of why you were fired or what they said. Even employees who are fired for cause might be able to prove wrongful termination, in the right circumstances.

It’s not illegal for an employer to fire an employee, even for a reason that seems unfair or unjustified. Unfortunately, an employer can even legally lie about the reason for termination. However, the employer cannot legally fire anyone for a reason that breaches a contract or violates the law. If the real reason for terminating an employee is discrimination, retaliation, employee whistle-blowing, or other protected activity, the termination is then wrongful.

The only way to know for sure is to consult with an attorney. You need The Longo Firm. The Longo Firm is a personal injury and employment law firm located in Davie, Florida. We help people seriously injured in accidents or who are having problems with their employer. If this describes you, reach out to us today at (954) 862-3608, or email We offer a free legal consultation and work mainly on a contingency fee basis, meaning there is no legal fee or cost to you unless we get a successful settlement. Too many other attorneys don’t want to fight for you for very long and will attempt to settle and avoid court, even if their client has a good case to get more. We think this is wrong! Bring in The Longo Firm and we will stay and fight, even go to court, if it means getting you the financial settlement you are entitled to.
