Answering Your Important Questions
We know that our clients have a lot of questions about their case before they even meet with us. To help you get the information you need as soon as possible, we have taken the liberty to answer some of the more common answers we get here:
How does FMLA work in Florida?
Because FMLA benefits are federally provided instead of provided by any state, the benefits work the same as they do anywhere else in the country. With this benefit, employees are able to take time off from work to care for their family. Although the time off is unpaid, it is also protected, which shields you from termination or disciplinary action for taking it.
What is the best way to protect your business from employment law issues in Florida?
When you want to be sure you and your business are compliant with Florida business laws, the best way you can do that is by having a lawyer look after you and your business. Skilled legal representation can help you avoid legal issues and keep small issues from growing into much larger ones down the road.
What are Florida-specific employment laws?
Federal laws set the standard for employment law protections, but each state has the right to go above and beyond that protection. In Florida, there is a higher minimum wage than the federal level (going to $12 in September 2023), protection against marital status discrimination and health care coverage protections.
