Did you know that labor and employment laws are complex?

Labor and Employment Lawyers in Miami, FL

For example, Florida is an “at-will” employment state with specific laws regarding termination, unemployment benefits, and employment contracts. Complying with these laws is critical to avoid unnecessary legal and tax complications.

We handle all types of employment law disputes in connection with labor law litigations, including:

Employment Discrimination and Harassment

We are here to protect you against discrimination based on race, color, religion, sex, natural origin, pregnancy, disability, and other “protected class” categories. The same acts prohibiting discrimination also prohibit Florida workplace harassment. We can help you seek justice for the harassment and discrimination you face at work.

Unpaid Wages

Unpaid wages can take many forms. The most common are wages employers refuse to pay after a worker is terminated or quits. However, unfair employment practices like employee misclassifications can also entitle employees to unpaid overtime compensation. If an employee is misclassified as an exempt worker or independent contractor, they have the right to pursue compensation for any overtime compensation they have not received.

Unlawful & Wrongful Termination

Florida is an “at-will” employment state, meaning that employers have full discretion to hire and terminate employees without providing a warning or a reason for termination. However, your employer cannot terminate your employment for unlawful reasons, such as discrimination. If you believe you may have lost your job for an unlawful reason, we are here to assist you and ensure that you exercise your rights and receive just compensation.

Whistleblower and Retaliation

The term “whistleblower” describes an employee who reports violations of the law by an employer. The Whistleblower’s Act protects you against employer retaliation. Retaliation against an employee can include termination, unfavorable evaluation, disciplinary action, and demotion. This can prove to be a complex issue, so we always encourage seeking counsel immediately.

Liabilities for Workplace Accidents

Employees who suffered from an injury during the course of employment, at or outside of work, are entitled to benefits from workers’ compensation. EPGD Law can help you ensure that you are fully compensated and receive the medical care you are entitled to.

Family and Medical Leave Act (FMLA)

The Family and Medical Leave Act is a federal law that guarantees the right to take up to 12 weeks of unpaid, job-protected leave. If you have worked for an employer for at least a year nonconsecutively, you are typically entitled to FMLA leave. We can help ensure you benefit from the FMLA leave you are entitled to and seek justice if you face retaliation for taking your rightful leave.
