EMPLOYMENT LAW

 

 
 

Do you have a Florida employment dispute that requires litigation? Our firm prides itself on its ability to competently litigate cases for employers and employees in matters of labor and employment law. We provide representation in cases of discrimination, harassment, retaliation, non-compete, employment contracts, overtime pay, wage and hour disputes, and more.

 
 

wage and hour disputes

All too often, employees in Florida and elsewhere are not given the pay they deserve. The Fair Labor Standard Act (FLSA), minimum wage laws, and other wage and hour laws protect employees from such treatment. Employees often believe it is not worth it - or they do not have the resources to fight wage claim disputes.


overtime pay disputes

The Fair Labor Standards Act (FLSA) is a federal law that requires overtime pay to be paid to most employees at the rate of one and one-half times their regular rate of pay when employees work more than 40 hours in a week. Most employees are covered by this Act. Unfortunately, employers violate these laws in many different and sometimes creative ways


employment discrimination

Title VII and the Florida Civil Rights Act makes it illegal to discriminate in any aspect of employment because of an individual's race, color, religion, national origin, ancestry, sex, disability or age (40 through 69). Employment Discrimination also extends to any form of harassment, retaliation, denial of employment opportunities to a person because of marriage to, or association with, an individual of a particular race, religion, national origin, or an individual with a disability, and asking certain pre-employment questions


retaliation

In the workplace, employers unfortunately retaliate against their own employees for many reasons. Fortunately for aggrieved employees, Florida has laws in place to protect employees from certain retaliatory conduct. It is unlawful for an employer to retaliate against any employee who engages in “protected activity.” “Protected Activity” consists of an employee resisting or objecting to harassment or discrimination in the workplace.
