Workplace Discrimination and Retaliation
Discriminatory and unfair labor practices are not uncommon and can occur in various ways. Here are just some examples of how workplace bullies exploit employees.
Examples of Workplace Discrimination and Retaliation
- Denied a promotion based on gender, age or race
- Fired for being pregnant or taking FMLA leave
- Dismissed for being hurt on the job
- Being harassed for reporting workplace violations
If you’re a victim of employer retaliation or workplace discrimination in Tampa, Florida, you have rights and are entitled to compensation. Having an experienced labor law attorney can help you build a strong case against your employer.
Wage Disputes and Unpaid Overtime
In the State of Florida, employees qualify for overtime pay of time-and-a-half for every hour of work after 40 hours. However, to minimize payroll expenses, some employers use tactics, such as employee misclassification to avoid paying overtime to qualified employees. Misclassification is also used to get out of paying Florida minimum wage, which is now $8.25 per hour (2018).
If you believe you qualify for overtime or were not paid the wages you were owed, you need to consult with an employment lawyer in Tampa. Our law firm has over 30 years of experience in representing unpaid overtime and wage disputes in Florida.
