Is it a possibility to suit or demand job reinstatement or economical compensation for retaliation?
Thank you for the information:
Response: Regrettably No. You have no protection as a Selected Exempt Service (SES) employee if you are not a part of the Union—if you do not have a collective bargaining agreement. You an employee at will and therefore work at the pleasure of your employer. The employer can terminate you for any reason or for no reason at all so long as the termination does not have anything to do with one of the prohibited ground such as your race, gender, age (40 and over), national origin or the like. See Florida Statutes Chapter 110 Section 110.604. Also see the web site of U.S. Equal Employment Opportunity Commission:
I am truly sorry that I do not have better news for you. However, I have ethical and professional obligation to provide you with honest assessment of your case eventhough that assessment may not be in your favor.
Thank you for your understanding.
Let me know if you need further clarification.

Thanks, XXXXX XXXXX does not applies because the two investigations I were doing and that can affect the supervisor? Response: You may be protected by Florida Whistleblower Protection Act (the "Act") if you have disclosed your investigation to another government Agency or to another official at your agency. However, your narrative only mentioned that you were doing investigations, but did not state that you disclosed the content of the investigations to anyone.

No, the investigations were in process and probably that's the reason he fire me the same day he knew about them.
