What Are My Rights As an Employee in Florida?
There is a multitude of laws that cover employment laws in the state of Florida. It is essential that you get with your Florida employment lawyer if you have a particular concern and believe that your employer has breached their duty.
Some of the rights that you should understand include:
Wage and Hour Laws
Unless a specific written contract has been made, any work outside of ten hours of labor in a legal day’s work will require the employee to receive extra pay for all work performed outside of those required hours. Our team can help ensure that you are being properly compensated for the work you perform.
Time Off for Family Needs
Under the Family Medical Leave Act, employees who need to take time off due to a serious illness or the birth of a baby have specific rights, including 12 weeks of unpaid leave each year.
Anti-Discrimination and Harassment Protection
Under Florida law, employers are prevented from making any employment decisions based on the following protected characteristics:
- Sex (and pregnancy)
If you have faced harassment or discrimination within any part of the employment relationship, you need to reach out to an attorney who can help.
