Fluctuating Work Week – FLSA – Florida Employment Law

There are a lot of problems that arise between an employer and employees. If you believe you have been wrongfully terminated, you should take the necessary steps to make a claim.

Understand The Law First
If you don’t know what the employment law is all about and you can’t interpret such laws, it’s going to be harder to prove wrongful termination. Sometimes these laws can be confusing, and there is the need to talk to a professional lawyer that has experience in that area of law. But even as an employee, you should understand the fundamental requirements, know your rights, and the employer’s rights. You should talk to your employer or human relations within the business before hiring an attorney; if there is mutual agreement, there is no need to hire an attorney.
Gather Evidence
When you believe that you were wrongfully terminated, you need evidence that can support your claim; you should document everything, including witnesses if they’re available. If you don’t know how to go through this, you should seek professional help from an attorney. He will help you get all the evidence to win your case.
Report To EEOC
The first step is to file a case with EEOC for breach of contract. You can save yourself time by letting an excellent attorney do all the due process because it can be tedious and complicated.
When you take the right steps, especially if an attorney is involved, your employer will now start taking things seriously. With an experienced attorney, you have a better chance of winning your claim, in or out of the court. That’s why it’s a good idea to go with an attorney when your employer refuses to compromise.
Florida Employment Laws – What Are The Employee Basic Right?
As a Florida resident, you have fundamental rights that employers must comply with, such as any discrimination or wrongful termination in the workplace. There are some traits that every employee shouldn’t be discriminated against and includes; gender, age, religion, and disability.
If any employers try to discriminate against you because of these traits, take the proper action against such employers. As a rule of thumb, you should always seek advice before making any step when dealing with employers because of wrongful deeds. If an employer provides any employment benefits because of such traits, he has violated state and federal laws, and an employee can take legal action against such employers.
Sexual Harassment
There are a lot of people that are victims of sexual harassment, and they don’t know what to do. Sexual harassment is a form of sex discrimination, and it involves any unwelcomed sexual behaviors such as touching or sexual advancement, the harasser can be of the same gender or different gender.
As a Florida resident, you are protected by law from any form of sexual harassment, and if you notice that you should take the necessary steps to prevent yourself from being a victim. As an employee, you shouldn’t ignore sexual harassment behaviors because you believe you might lose your job or certain job benefits like promotions. You are protected, and the employer doesn’t have the right to terminate your employment because you reported his actions to the proper authority.
Most companies and employers already have their professional team of lawyers. If you have experienced discrimination in the workplace, the first thing you want to do is to talk to an employment attorney. It is not an easy process.
