State and Federal Workplace Discrimination Laws
The Florida Civil Rights Act and Title VII of the Civil Rights Act of 1964 prohibit work discrimination. This includes discrimination in recruiting, hiring, promotion, compensation, disciplinary actions, training, and job evaluations. In spite of this, employers across the country continue to willfully or negligently discriminate against employees and job applicants.
It is illegal for an employer to discriminate against a person due to their:
- Sexual orientation
- National origin
Florida employment discrimination law prohibits discrimination based on the following additional characteristics:
- Marital Status
- AIDS/HIV status
- Sickle Cell Trait
Discriminatory actions can include the wrongful termination of an employee due to their membership in one of these protected classes. Additionally, employees facing discrimination can be subject to wage issues, harassment, and be barred from promotion and other work opportunities.

Florida is a deferral state. This means victims of workplace discrimination in Tampa can file with a state or local agency approved by the Equal Employment Opportunity Commission, or EEOC. This complaint must be filed within 300 days of the discriminatory act.
If, upon investigation, the EEOC does not rule in favor of the claimant, the claimant will be notified of their right to sue. The claimant will have 90 days from receiving this notice to file their suit. The claimant can also request a right to sue letter 180 days after filing the charge.
