Retaliation

Standing up for your rights as an employee can be a challenging and intimidating process. Unfortunately, employers often resort to retaliation when employees assert their legal rights.

Workers’ Compensation Retaliation

Employees who get hurt on the job and seek workers’ compensation benefits often find themselves terminated for the flimsiest of reasons.

Sexual Harassment

You have a right to work in a workplace free of unwanted sexual comments, innuendo, photos, videos, and touching.

Discrimination

The law prohibits discrimination against individuals because of their age, race, color, national origin, religion, gender, sexual orientation, or disability.

Disability Discrimination

Individuals living with disabilities often face unique challenges when navigating a workplace that is not necessarily built for them. Simple but important adjustments have the potential to dramatically improve quality of life and performance, but employers may resist making “special exceptions.”

Race Discrimination

The United States Constitution, Federal law, and Florida law all require equal rights for all people, regardless of their race. It is a fundamental right.

Age Discrimination

Employers cannot discriminate against employees because of their age.

Religious Discrimination

Employees are entitled to work for an employer regardless of their own religious beliefs, and to have reasonable requests related to their religion accommodated by their employer.

Pregnancy Discrimination

It should be an exciting and happy time; don’t let your employer steal your joy by discriminating against you.

Sex Discrimination

The law forbids sexual orientation and gender identity discrimination when it comes to any aspect of employment.

Equal Pay

The law is clear: everyone must be paid equally, regardless of gender.

EEOC and FCHR Representation

One of the biggest mistakes employees make is attempting to navigate the EEOC and FCHR administrative process without proper representation.

Family Medical Leave Act

Eligible employees may qualify for up to 12 weeks of unpaid and protected leave throughout any 12-month period for specific family and medical issues.

Whistleblower Retaliation

If you see something, say something – it is against the law for employers to retaliate against employees who speak out against their employer’s unlawful action.

Wage Disputes

You work hard for the money – and we work hard to get you the money you earned.

Unpaid Wages

Commissions & Bonuses

You made the sale. You hit your numbers. But your employer doesn’t want to reward your efforts by paying you what they agreed to pay you.

Fair Labor Standards Act

The Fair Labor Standards Act requires employers to pay covered employees a minimum wage and an overtime premium.

Overtime Pay Calculations

Covered employees deserve to be paid for their overtime hours; we work tirelessly to recover the compensation they are owed.

Independent Contractor Misclassification

Employers will often misclassify employees as independent contractors to avoid paying overtime and other benefits.

Minimum Wage

The Fair Labor Standards Act requires employers to pay covered employees a minimum wage and an overtime premium.

Wrongful Termination

What does the term “wrongful termination” mean, and can I sue my employer for it?

Contracts & Agreements

Employment contracts require close and careful review.

Employment Contracts

You made a deal with your employer and held up your end of the bargain. You should expect them to do the same for you.

Non-compete Agreements

Employers must have compelling business reasons to restrict your actions once the employment relationship ends.

Severance Negotiation

You’ve been offered severance by your employer – but does it fairly compensate you for what you have experienced? We might be able to help you get more.

COBRA

Your employment might have ended, but you may still have a right to continue your health insurance.

Employers performing background checks must comply with strict rules before they look into your background.
