Employment and labor laws govern the relationships between employers and employees. These laws are extensive and can be confusing and overwhelming, especially for small and medium-sized businesses. They require attorneys to be knowledgeable on a variety of issues all at once, such as human resource guidelines, wage and hour statutes, occupational safety and health, workers and unemployment compensation, and anti-discrimination and equal opportunity laws. Your attorney needs to have knowledge and experience in all of the areas of employment law so that he or she is able to understand the full scope of your questions or issues and can readily identify all of your potential options (and their pros and cons.)
We have a thorough understanding of Florida and federal labor and employment laws — including Florida Civil Rights Act, Title VII of the Civil Rights Act of 1964, the Equal Pay Act (EPA), the Americans with Disabilities Act (ADA), the Age Discrimination in Employment Act (ADEA), the Family and Medical Leave Act (FMLA), and the Fair Labor Standards Act (FLSA).
