Labor and Employment Issues
Experienced Law Firm Defending Florida Employers
Florida employers may face a wide variety of claims brought against them
by employees, prospective employees, or past employees. These claims may
concern allegations of employment discrimination, such as discrimination
based on age, gender, race, national origin, pregnancy, religion, or disability.
Other claims of improper treatment may be filed against employers based
on unemployment compensation, workers' compensation benefits, workplace
safety, fair wages, pensions, contracts, employee benefits, and more.
These claims may involve any aspect of the employer-employee relationship,
from hiring and firing to job advancement or promotion to job assignments,
demotion, and termination to job training. Other claims may involve allegations
of employer retaliation against employees for making such claims.
The employer-employee relationship is governed by both state and federal
employment and labor laws, such as the Fair Labor Standards Act (FLSA),
Title VII of the Civil Rights Act of 1964, the Age Discrimination in Employment
Act, the Family and Medical Leave Act, and other legislation. Federal
employment laws are enforced by the Equal Employment Opportunity Commission
(EEOC). Florida workers are also protected by state labor laws.
