CLIENT QUESTIONS ABOUT EMPLOYMENT LAW
Our Employment Attorney Explains Common Concerns
Are you facing a situation at work and want to know more about your legal options? You may have questions just like those we’ve heard from many clients before. We answer common questions related to employment law cases.
How do I know if I have a legal case?
The only way to know for sure whether you have an employment law case is to ask a seasoned attorney. Generally, you may have a case if the employer has discriminated or retaliated against you based on gender (for example, sexual harassment), race, medical disability, age, or whistleblowing activity. Or, you may have a case if wage and hour or workers’ comp laws have been violated. When you talk to our experienced employment attorney, we will explain how the law impacts your situation and what legal options you have.
How much is my employment law case worth?
The value of your case depends, in part, on how blatantly and knowingly the employer violated employment laws. If these violations resulted in harm to you, the extent of your damages will also be a factor. “Damages” are losses you incur, including financial losses as well as harms to you professionally and emotionally. In a consultation, our employment attorney in Tampa can provide an accurate estimate of the worth of your case.
I am salaried. Can I still be owed overtime?
Just because an employer classifies you as exempt, or states you are exempt, their claim may not be legally correct. Hence there are thousands of employment law cases across the U.S. filed each month in which workers were not paid overtime wages because they were classified as exempt. This is what we call a "misclassification case."
I have a college degree and work in a white-collar job. Am I exempt?
If you have a title such as “executive,” “manager,” “director,” or “account representative,” you may assume you are exempt from being paid for extra hours you work. That may not be the case. You’ll need to check with an employment attorney about whether your position meets the exemption definition. But having a college degree and being a white-collar worker or having a fancy job title, or even being called a “manager,” has no bearing on whether you are exempt or entitled to overtime wages.
Do employers have to pay for time spent prepping before work commences?
Employers may have to pay employees for tasks the employees perform before they clock in and after they clock out, typically called “donning” or “doffing.” The time spent waiting also is compensable. If your employer orders or commands you to first set up something, this time should be paid.
How does an employment law trial work?
A trial provides the opportunity to present evidence before a judge and jury to prove the facts of your case. A great deal of preparation takes place before the trial date, including preparing the plaintiff and witnesses for testimony. A jury is selected by employment attorneys from both sides, then the case is argued until a verdict is handed down. The losing side has the option of appealing the decision, and the judge has the right to reduce the jury award.
What state or federal agencies oversee employment cases?
That depends on the nature of your case. If you experienced discrimination at work, you can turn to the Florida Commission on Human Relations (FCHR) or the U.S. Equal Employment Opportunity Commission (EEOC). If you need to blow the whistle on negligent actions at work that led to an employee injury, you can contact the U.S. Occupational Safety and Health Administration (OSHA). If your issues relate to getting benefits for an injury at work, you can contact the Florida Division of Workers’ Compensation. There are other agencies that may have oversight of issues related to your employment law case. When you talk to an experienced employment attorney, you can learn which agencies can be involved. It is in your best interests to have legal counsel even before you contact an agency so you know all of your legal options and can understand how your case might proceed.
Do you have more questions? We know each case is different and employment law covers a wide range of issues. If you need more answers, talk to us. Give us a call so we can evaluate your situation and let you know if you have a legal case.
OUR EMPLOYMENT LAWYERS MAKE A DIFFERENCE FOR WORKERS
Employers don’t always do the right thing. When they fall short, our employment lawyer can make sure workers are treated fairly.
Any experienced Tampa employment attorney can tell you countless ways in which employers mistreat their employees. Workers can be subjected to discrimination. They can be denied payment and benefits promised by their employers or guaranteed by the law. They can be denied compensation after a serious workplace injury. They can be illegally fired.
Our employment lawyers stand up for the rights of workers to make sure they are treated fairly. At the Feldman Legal Group, we have years of experience representing workers, and we’ve seen the many ways workers get a raw deal.
It can be intimidating to take legal action against your employer, but it’s often the only way to ensure they are held accountable for broken promises. Our past results prove that we get results for our clients, but we want the opportunity to meet with you personally to hear about your situation and tell you how we can help. When you rely on our Tampa employment attorney for guidance, you don’t need to be intimidated any more. We will aggressively fight for your rights, and we’ll explain what’s involved with each step of your case.
What Leads to a Successful Employment Lawsuit?
The most successful lawsuits have clearly established facts based on evidence that is difficult to dispute. This is why it is important to gather as much evidence as you can to back up your claims. The skill and experience of our employment law attorney is also a very important factor in the outcome of your case. As in any profession, there is a wide variation in talent and work ethic among employment lawyers. That’s why turning to our team is your best option. We have knowledge of Florida and federal employment laws; we have a long history of experience; we have a track record of wins; and we know how to either negotiate or litigate to get the best outcome possible for you.
Should I Expect a Settlement or a Trial? The vast majority of employment law cases will settle before they proceed to court. For the plaintiff, this means you can receive compensation much sooner and avoid the stress of a contentious trial. On the strength of a well-documented case and smart legal strategy, many of our clients have received substantial settlements without going to trial.
How Does a Settlement Work in an Employment Law Case? A settlement is usually negotiated by legal counsel for the plaintiff (you) and defendant (typically, your employer). The final decision rests with all parties involved. They may accept settlement at the advice of their employment law attorneys. A case is most likely to settle if the plaintiff’s attorneys provide persuasive arguments and clear evidence that the defendant has broken the law…and that a jury would likely agree. If a settlement cannot be reached, the case can go to trial.
