Plan to Participate in a Protest? Here’s How it May Affect Your Job, Orlando Business Journal
Sally Culley offers insight about workplace rules in Florida on how employers should handle employee protests and what workers should know in an article published in the Orlando Business Journal on June 12, 2020.
“The Sunshine State is an “at-will” state when it comes to employee rights. That means an employer can terminate an employee for most reasons as long as it’s not discriminatory or illegal,” explains Culley.
She further explains that some types of employees might have more protections.
“Employees who work for the government, who have employment contracts and who are members of a union may have some additional protections. Other states, like California and New York, also have laws that protect employees for engaging in lawful activity during non-working hours,” says Culley.
