You can certainly discuss this situation with a Florida employment law attorney. Depending upon the circumstances and whether you signed a written employment agreement that states lawsuits must be filed in California, you may or may not be about to sue the company here in Florida. However, a Florida lawyer can certainly send a "demand letter" to the company, and engage in negotiations on your behalf. If California law does apply, realize that it is likely more favorable to you as an employee than Florida law would be.

My advice is that you consult with a Florida attorney to assess the situation. I do not offer free consultations, but there are some employment law attorneys who do.
