We are knowledgeable in all aspects of employment law because we have devoted our careers to it. Let us show you the difference our experience can make.
Wage and Hour Claims
Wage and hour cases involve any situation in which employees believe they were either not compensated at all or not sufficiently paid for their work. A wage dispute may involve an employer refusing to pay overtime wages. It may involve employees claiming they were forced to work off the clock, or not paid the federal or Florida minimum wage. These claims may also involve failure to pay commissions to sales people. If you are involved in any type of dispute involving your pay, we can help.
Discrimination and Harassment
Employees have the right to work in a non-discriminatory and non-hostile environment. Discrimination and harassment in the workplace based on gender, race, color, national origin, age, religion, or disability violate that right. If you feel your rights have been violated, we can help you.
From non-compete agreements and severance agreements, to general employment contracts, we can help you manage your contract needs. We understand the value of contracts in the employment arena and how to make them work for you. Whether you are interested in the drafting or review of an employment contract or you are considering litigation for breach of contract, we can help. We are available to assist with any employment contract matter.
Retaliatory actions are illegal according to federal and state employment laws. This means that action taken against an employee, including a demotion, change in work duties or termination, that are due to the reporting of sexual harassment, discrimination or other work situation is considered retaliation. We provide representation to individuals who have experienced retaliation on the job or employers who are accused of retaliating against an employee.
A complicated area of the law, whistleblower and qui tam cases involve employees reporting illegal activities that are being committed by their employers. We represent the interests of employees or employers that are at the center of a whistleblower or qui tam case. Our firm takes the time to explain these types of cases and ensure that your rights are protected.
