Employment law encompasses a complex network of state and federal laws that govern how employers must treat employees and applicants for employment. Florida is an employment at-will state, meaning that employers have the freedom to terminate an employee for any or no reason. However, it is illegal to fire, refuse to hire, harass, or discriminate against an employee or potential employee based on certain protected classes, such as race, sex, age, or disability.

In this case Mr. Rousso represented several African American managerial employees of a well-known fortune 500 company, who alleged that they were terminated, and harassed based on race. Through hard fought litigation, Mr. Rousso uncovered scores of direct, circumstantial and statistical evidence of discrimination, and was able to show that our clients’ terminations were racially motivated. As a result, our firm was able to obtain both justice and significant compensation for our brave clients.
