Boca Raton Employment Law Attorney
Throughout the state of Florida, including Boca Raton, West Palm Beach and the surrounding communities, our firm has represented clients on all kinds of workplace claims, including:
If you have been discriminated against, you should know that there are many laws ensuring your protection, including the Americans with Disabilities Act, the Equal Pay Act, the Family and Medical Leave Act and many others. Employers are not allowed to discriminate against employees on the basis of age, disability, gender, sex, race, pregnancy, national origin or religion. Talk with our firm and learn about your employee rights.
Sexual harassment and other mistreatment in the workplace can have significant effects on employees. If you believe you have been the victim of sexual harassment in the workplace, talk with us about how to protect yourself from that deplorable behavior.
When employees are underpaid, misclassified, denied sick leave or vacation time, or are otherwise mistreated, it may be possible to file a wage and hour claim to recover lost wages, as well as back pay, attorneys fees and court costs. We can help you pursue that recovery.
Although Florida is an employment-at-will state, employers can still not break the law when they fire or let go of employees. Employers cannot get rid of employees based on discrimination, retaliation or sexual harassment.
If you have been fired or feel you are being forced to quit for illegal reasons, consult with a qualified employment law attorney, as soon as possible, to make sure you understand your rights and how to protect them.
