Wage & Hour Disputes in Miami, FL
When it comes to saving money, some employers use common tactics to avoid paying employees what they are owed. In Florida, employees are entitled to time-and-a-half for every hour over 40 within a single workweek, according to the Fair Labor Standards Act (FLSA). However, some employers will misclassify employees and use other tactics to get out of paying overtime costs, commission, and the Florida minimum wage, which is currently $8.25 per hour (2018).
An experienced Miami labor lawyer can help you build a strong case against your employer and help you recover back pay and other unpaid wages.
Discrimination in the Workplace
An employee in Florida can be discriminated against based on age, sex, gender, race, nationality or another protected class. If you’ve been discriminated against, building a case on your own is no easy task. You must show proof that your employer not only discriminated against you but intended to do so.
Our team of experienced labor and employment law attorneys have successfully handled complex employment law disputes and represented thousands of retaliation and discrimination cases throughout the State of Florida.
