South Florida is one of the most litigious areas in the country when it comes to employment disputes. It is unsurprising then that many prominent appellate decisions concerning employment issues originate in South Florida. This underscores the added importance of having legal counsel regularly review a company’s processes and procedures to make sure the most updated law is being closely followed.
Employment law is an amorphous term that actually includes various federal laws, including Fair Labor Standards Act, Title VII of the Civil Rights Act of 1964, Family Medical Leave Act, Title I of the Americans with Disabilities Act, and the Age Discrimination in Employment Act. The term would also include state laws such as the Florida Civil Rights Act of 1992 and the Florida Whistleblower’s Act. All of these laws and others must be taken into account when an attorney reviews a company’s procedures. The goal here is to avoid misunderstandings and disputes before they arise.
