Employment Claim Defense

We defend all forms of employment-related claims. We can assist from the time a potential claim arises, through government body investigation, into mediation, arbitration or litigation and even appeals. Some of the types of claims we can assist with are as follows:

  • Overtime and minimum wage claims under the FLSA
  • Claims of discrimination based on race, religion, national origin, sexual orientation, and gender, including sexual harassment,  under Title VII and the Florida Civil Rights Act
  • Pregnancy discrimination claims under the Pregnancy Discrimination Act
  • Claims under the FMLA
  • Claims under the ADA
  • Claims under the ADEA
  • Claims for worker’s compensation claim retaliation
  • Florida Whistleblower Act claims
  • Title VII or Florida Civil Rights Act claims of retaliation
  • Claims of breach of contract
  • Unemployment compensation benefits claims

As soon as you hire one employee, business becomes more complicated. By the time you have 10 or 20, you should discuss your company’s employment policies and practices with an employment law attorney.
