Reporting workplace safety issues and employee rights violations

Many Florida employees are unaware that they don't have to work in hostile or hazardous environments. Some of them are so grateful for their jobs that they feel they can ignore the dangerous or abusive conditions that exist in their workplaces ... until someone gets hurt. Others are so afraid of being retaliated against by their employers that they say nothing. 

Two big mistakes that employers can make with online job ads

If you are like many job hunters, you turn to apps and websites like LinkedIn as well as industry-specific job boards to find open positions. You may also follow the social media accounts of companies that particularly interest you. Well-known job resources like Monster.com might also be good places for you to search.

Have you faced workplace sexual harassment in a restaurant?

The hospitality and food industries have thrived in Florida due to tourism and population growth. While you may find working in a restaurant to be a fun, challenging and rewarding job, some parts of the job are not as pleasant. This is especially true of sexual harassment at work.

Are Florida servers and bartenders making minimum wage?

When it comes to your job, making money is usually the most important factor. While it is nice to enjoy your workplace and fraternize with colleagues, your work is still work, and you need fair compensation for it. Serving and bartending are notoriously difficult yet potentially lucrative careers, but both of these positions rely on income paid by patrons in the form of tips.

Is age discrimination always illegal?

The federal law ADEA, the Age Discrimination in Employment Act of 1967, strives to prevent age discrimination in employment. It applies for workers 40 and older, as long as their employer has at least 20 workers. So, someone who is 25 may not necessarily have an age discrimination case.

Are you not getting paid for working off the clock?

Does your boss ever ask you to work off the clock? If so, you might not be getting the pay you actually deserve. This tactic is used by some business owners and managers to save money and cheat workers out of their rightful wages. You might be ambitious and want to be a team player, or maybe you want to avoid conflict, but you should be wary if your supervisor requests you to work without payment or proper compensation for overtime

Three examples of LGBT discrimination and harassment at work

Despite increasing acceptance and protections, many lesbian, gay, bisexual and transgender individuals still experience discrimination and harassment in the workplace. No matter what your sexual orientation or gender identity is, you deserve fair and respectful treatment. Whenever someone suffers mistreatment for their sexual orientation or gender presentation, it is troubling and disturbing.
