According to both Florida state and federal laws, it is illegal for employers or companies to discriminate against their employees. Employers are not allowed to discriminate against an employee’s race, color, religion, sex, national origin, disabilities or age. Anytime an employee feels that he or she has been subjected to discrimination by an employer or co-worker, he or she has the right to enforce his or her legal rights.

However, anti-discrimination laws give you a limited amount of time to file a charge of discrimination. In general, you need to file a charge within 180 calendar days from the day the discrimination took place. The 180 calendar day filing deadline is extended to 300 calendar days if a state or local agency enforces a law that prohibits employment discrimination on the same basis. The rules are slightly different for age discrimination charges. For age discrimination, the filing deadline is only extended to 300 days if there is a state law prohibiting age discrimination in employment and a state agency or authority enforcing that law. The deadline is not extended if only a local law prohibits age discrimination. Regardless of how much time you have to file, it is best to file as soon as you have decided that is what you would like to do.

If more than one discriminatory event took place, the deadline usually applies to each event. For example, let's say you were demoted and then fired a year later. You believe the employer based its decision to demote and fire you on your race, and you file a charge the day after your discharge. In this case, only your claim of discriminatory discharge is timely. In other words, you must have filed a charge challenging the demotion within 180/300 days from the day you were demoted. If you didn't, we would only investigate your discharge. There is one exception to this general rule and that is if you are alleging ongoing harassment, in which case you must file your charge within 180 or 300 days of the last incident of harassment.

In some cases, the employee may be able to obtain monetary compensation for the discrimination he or she suffered from while in the work place. One of the keys to obtaining a successful end result is hiring an uncompromising employment litigation attorney who is well practiced when it comes to wrongful termination and discrimination cases.
