WHAT AREAS OF EMPLOYMENT LAW DOES OUR FIRM HANDLE?

Our firm handles wage disputes, including unpaid overtime; discrimination cases based on gender, age disability, or religion; employment contract review and negotiation, including contracts for physicians and athletes; and arbitration disputes.

What is workplace harassment and discrimination? Title VII and Florida law protect certain classes including race, sex, age, religion and disability. Harassment in the work place includes any unwelcome conduct from a supervisor and/or co-worker. The employee must report any unwelcome conduct at the work place to his or her immediate supervisor and any HR Department. If the employee is being harassed by his or her supervisor, the employee should report the harassment to the supervisor's superior and continue to go up the "chain of command." All complaints should be in writing and a copy should be retained by the employee. All employees have the right to a safe working environment devoid of harassment and discrimination.

Contract negotiation & arbitration — All parties are required to abide by the terms and conditions of their employment agreement. Resolving potential areas of dispute prior to entering an employment arrangement will protect both parties. If a dispute has arisen under the terms and conditions of your employment contract, whether you are an employer, employee, or independent contractor, contact our firm to review your contract.
