If you have a discrimination theory about retaliatory discharge or hostile workplace conditions you'll need a lawyer. Religious belief, age, gender, race etc. all are discriminatory reasons for which you cannot be legally fired and upon which you might base a wrongful termination suit.
If you are an at-will employee, you can be fired for any reason or no reason, except unlawful discrimination. If you do not have an employment contract or union to represent you, your recourse is limited. Discrimination based on age, gender, race, religious beliefs etc.... may give rise to a different answer.
If your ex employer is refusing to pay unemployment benefits, you need to file an appeal and have a phone hearing with a referee from the state of Florida. I strongly suggest you obtain an employment lawyer to represent you in the appeal hearing.
