OUR LABOR ATTORNEYS’ AREAS OF PRACTICE
Our labor lawyers in Tampa have experience with a wide range of labor law practice areas, though some of the most common types of cases we deal with are outlined below. If you have a potential labor law case that is not listed below, please understand that this is not a comprehensive list of all of our practice areas. Feel free to call our office so we can discuss your specific case further.
WRONGFUL TERMINATION CASES
If you have been recently terminated from your job under questionable circumstances, it is vital that you speak with our legal team about the possibility of filing a wrongful termination case against your previous employer. Our labor attorneys in Tampa are well-versed in state and federal laws designed to protect workers just like you from unfair and unjust termination. Unfortunately, wrongful termination happens on a regular basis, and many terminated employees never even realize that they are victims. Allow our legal team to gather the details of your termination and help you determine whether you have recourse against your employer.
The Americans With Disabilities Act, the Civil Rights Act, the Age Discrimination in Employment Act, and numerous other laws exist to protect workers from discriminatory practices in the workplace. Unfortunately, not all employers operate in total compliance with these laws, putting workers in unfair positions and sometimes even downright dangerous working conditions.
If you believe you have suffered from workplace discrimination, time is of the essence when it comes to taking legal action. Some of the discrimination practice areas our labor lawyers in Tampa cover include:
WAGE DISPUTE CLAIMS
Are you being paid a fair wage for the work you perform? Does your employer owe you back pay or overtime pay that you’ve yet to receive? If so, then you may have a case for a wage dispute claim against your employer — current or former. The state of Florida minimum wage law stipulates that workers should receive a minimum wage of $8.25 per hour, with exceptions for workers in tipped positions. Furthermore, state overtime laws require that many employees working more than 40 hours a week be paid overtime at a 50% premium rate. Even many full-time, salaried employees are entitled to overtime pay yet never collect on it because they don’t realize they are eligible.
If you believe your employer isn’t complying with state wage or overtime laws, we encourage you to schedule a case assessment with our Tampa labor attorneys as soon as possible.
EMPLOYMENT CONTRACT DISPUTES
Has your employer failed to fulfill certain aspects of your employment agreement/contract? Do you feel “trapped” in an employment contract due to a misunderstanding or miscommunication? If so, then our labor lawyers may be able to help. One of our many labor law practice areas is the category of employment contract disputes. These can apply to both salaried/hourly W-2 workers and independent contractors. We’re here to represent you and make sure that you’re being treated fairly, so if you believe your employer isn’t holding up his or her end of your employment agreement or if you entered into a contract that has created an undue burden on you, it’s time to set up a case evaluation with us to figure out how we can help moving forward.
