Employment law encompasses a wide range of legal issues governing the relationship between employers and employees. Understanding these legal frameworks is crucial for both employers and employees to ensure compliance and protect their rights. We help clients of all types, both employees and employers, in these sensitive topics.



Discrimination in the workplace is prohibited by federal and state laws, including Title VII of the Civil Rights Act of 1964, the Americans with Disabilities Act (ADA), the Age Discrimination in Employment Act (ADEA), and the Florida Civil Rights Act. Employers are prohibited from discriminating against employees or job applicants based on protected characteristics such as race, color, religion, sex, national origin, disability, age, or genetic information and must provide environments fee from harassment based on protected class. We represent clients in discrimination cases, helping employees obtain justice and helping employers defend claims made against them.

Overtime & Minimum Wage

Overtime and minimum wage cases, sometimes called “wage and hour” cases, are extremely common in Florida. These cases are governed by the Fair Labor Standards Act and the Florida Minimum Wage Act. It is easy for employers to run afoul of complex rules regarding exemptions, calculating hours worked, determining how much overtime is owed, and dealing with the effect of tip credits, side work, travel time, comp time, and bonuses. We help employers stay out of trouble and help employees who are underpaid for the hard work they do obtain the wages they earned.

Employee Handbooks

Employee handbooks, also known as employee manuals, are essential documents that outline company policies, procedures, and expectations for employees. These manuals help establish clear guidelines on issues such as workplace conduct, benefits, leave policies, and disciplinary procedures. Well-drafted employee manuals can prevent misunderstandings and legal disputes while promoting a positive work environment. Our firm provides comprehensive review and drafting services for employee manuals, ensuring they are legally compliant, up-to-date, and tailored to meet the specific needs of each client.

Restrictive Covenants

Restrictive covenants, including non-compete agreements, non-solicitation agreements, and confidentiality agreements, are contractual provisions aimed at protecting employers’ legitimate business interests. These agreements restrict employees’ actions both during and after employment, such as prohibiting them from competing with the employer, soliciting clients or employees, or disclosing confidential information. Our firm advises employers on drafting enforceable restrictive covenants and represents employees in ensuring covenant terms are appropriate and fair.

Other Employment Cases

We also assist employers and employees with other claims, such as commission disputes, Family Medical Leave Act (FMLA) claims, veteran’s discrimination, pregnancy discrimination, workers’ comp retaliation, and whistleblower claims, such as OSHA retaliation, Sarbanes Oxley claims, Dodd Frank claims, and Florida whistleblower statutes.
