Motel Clerk Wins $500K

A signficant win for a wrongfully terminated employee in Florida: A motel clerk who alleged that she was terminated for complaining of criminal conduct on the premises received a jury award of $500,000, including $425,000 in punitive damages. Specifically, she claimed that she lost her job due to her complaints regarding drug sales and prostitution that was permitted on the motel's premises. Her employer's claims that she stole $100 were apparently disregarded by the jury.
