Employment Discrimination in Florida
Workplaces should be places of professionalism and comfort, but unfortunately, this is not always the case. Workplace discrimination can take many forms, in terms of being denied promotions, penalties for taking rightful days off and outright harassment. Most often, discrimination occurs when an employee experiences unequal treatment based on specific personal traits. Florida law requires that employees must be treated in an equal manner, regardless of their cultural associations or personal traits. However, sometimes employees take these claims too far, alleging harassment or hostility after getting laid off or out of spite.
Our hostile work environment lawyers represent employers charged with violating Title VII of the Civil Rights Act of 1964, the Florida Civil Rights Act of 1992, the Equal Pay Act, the Americans with Disabilities Act, the Family and Medical Leave Act, the Age Discrimination in Employment Act and other federal and state statutes and ordinances. We deal directly with investigators of the United States Equal Employment Opportunity Commission (EEOC), the Florida Commission on Human Relations (FCHR) and the United States Department of Labor on behalf of clients. In any matter not resolved at the administrative level, the firm handles the litigation and trial of the case before state and federal courts, labor arbitration panels and other administrative bodies. We have years of experience litigating these types of claims, and our workplace discrimination lawyers are on your side when it comes to presenting a clear depiction of the alleged harassment or hostility at hand.
