Employment Law Overview

Employment law covers all facets of the relationship between employer and employee — from the hiring process and conduct in the workplace to layoffs and termination.

Employment Discrimination

Title VII of the Civil Rights Act of 1964 and the Civil Rights Act of 1991 outlaw unequal treatment on the basis of race, color, religion, sex or national origin.

Sexual Harassment

Also under Title VII, this provision declares it illegal for employers to make sexual advances or engage in other offensive conduct that creates a hostile work environment.

Age Discrimination

Age Discrimination in Employment Act (ADEA)
This prohibits the unequal treatment of workers based on their age and applies to workers over 40.

Disability Discrimination

Disability discrimination under the Americans with Disabilities Act (ADA): This refers to a refusal to hire or refusal to make reasonable accommodations in the workplace.

Family Leave Discrimination

The Pregnancy Discrimination Act sought to prevent the unfair treatment of women in the workplace because of pregnancy, childbirth or maternity leave.

Wrongful Termination

Employees are fired every day. Some are let go for legitimate reasons while others are terminated improperly under state and federal laws. The place of business has become a litigation battleground.

Whistleblower Claims

According to the Fair Labor Standards Act (FSLA), it is unlawful for companies to retaliate against or get even with workers who file a complaint regarding their employer’s alleged unlawful policies.

Wage and Hour Claims

Is your pay correct? Under the Fair Labor Standards Act, employers must pay minimum wage and overtime to eligible (nonexempt) employees. More about wage claims.

Employment Agreements

Employment agreements: This includes litigation of non-compete agreements and other employment contracts that create undue burdens on employees.

Protecting Workers Whose Civil Rights have been Violated

Florida’s parallel Civil Rights Act protects employees in the same classifications, meaning it is a parallel law to the federal legislation noted above. This means workers are protected by both state and federal employment laws. Our employment lawyers in Tampa can advocate on your behalf in filing a charge with the federal Equal Employment Opportunity Commission (EEOC) or the Florida Commission on Human Rights.

Employers may write the paychecks and have the authority to hire and fire, but when they abuse that power, they may be violating state and federal laws meant to protect workers from unfair treatment in the workplace. Taking action against an employer is a daunting process, but we’ll fight for you and hold the employer legally responsible for violating your rights as a worker.

A strong attorney can help you enforce your legal rights against powerful interests. No matter how complex your case is, our lawyers are able to present an effective argument on your behalf even in numerous large-scale matters, including class and collective action litigation in state and federal court.
