Employment Litigation Law Firm
Employment Litigation Overview
A business typically takes steps to protect against, and is prepared for, disputes with suppliers, clients and business partners. Often, however, these same businesses aren't prepared for disputes with their own employees.
The recent economy has brought huge numbers of employee terminations for Florida's businesses and recent legislation has brought even greater complexity to employment law. These items and other factors have only increased the risks that you may be sued by a current or past employee.
In this environment, employers often find themselves needing representation to defend against:
- Age / gender / disability / race claims
- Federal Fair Labor Standards Act (FLSA) and Employee Retirement Income Security Act claims
- Wrongful Termination Claims
- Enforcement of non-compete agreements, non-solicitation covenants and non-disclosure agreements
- Americans with Disabilities Act of 2008 and Lilly Ledbetter Fair Pay Act of 2009 claims
