Like many other states, Florida has its own set of whistleblower laws. They are intended to protect individuals from being retaliated against if they "blow the whistle" on - or reveal - the wrong-doings of the company that they work for. Here are some things to be aware of when it comes to Florida's whistleblower laws.
Florida's state legislature website says that under these laws, it is illegal to retaliate against an employee who has reported the unethical or illegal acts of an employer, upper management, or other branches within a company or business. Both public and private employees have protection under these laws. If fired under means that are determined to be retaliatory, they may pursue damages and sue for lost wages, back pay, benefits, and of course the damages claimed.
