Other Employment Cases We Handle

In addition to those listed above, the attorneys at Florin Gray Bouzas Owens, LLC are also adept at handling cases involving:

  • Whistleblower Retaliation: Whistleblowers are protected by law. Our attorneys can help ensure that your rights are protected under those laws.
  • Disabilities, Failure to Accommodate: Employers are required to provide workers with reasonable accommodations for religious observances and practices, and for employees with disabilities. A failure to provide these legally mandated accommodations is discriminatory.
  • Retaliation: If you have filed a complaint with the EEOC or OSHA and were then demoted, fired, your wages reduced or other retaliatory action, your rights have been violated and a legal action can be filed against your employer to seek compensation.
  • FMLA Retaliation: The Family and Medical Leave Act protects you from suffering employment consequences from requesting time off to deal with a family emergency, for filing a claim, or exercising your rights under the Act.

Both state and federal laws are in place to protect the rights of employees. Issues related to payment of fair wages, unpaid overtime, harassment, discrimination, retaliation or wrongful termination are difficult to experience, personally and financially. If you have been the victim of a rights violation by your employer, it is imperative that you have legal representation to assist you to pursue full and fair compensation.

Tampa Law Office

Without any reservation, Wolfgang Florin has my highest recommendation.

Simply put, you hope you never need an attorney. But, at some point, most of us do. It’s then, in that moment of need, the attorney you hope for is Wolfgang Florin. For a situation that we never expected to have, Mr. Florin and his team handled our case with compassion, tact, candor, and tenacity. While the legal outcome exceeded our expectations, it was the personal attention, sense of urgency, and genuine way in which Mr. Florin handled our case that elevated him to be someone we now consider a trusted confidant. Mr. Florin and his team will be my first call if ever we need legal counsel in the future.

Choosing Greg Owens as my attorney was the right decision.

Working in an industry which expected its employees to work well beyond the hours the industry was willing to compensate you for, it would have been easy to throw in the towel.  But working with Greg Owens made me realize there is nothing wrong with making corporate America accountable.  He and his team also have a knack of making legal language easy to understand.  Choosing Greg Owens as my attorney was the right decision.

Several law firms told me I didn't have a viable case. I had almost given up but then Attorney Christopher Gray took the time to analyze my case by developing a successful strategy.

I would've saved a lot of time by contacting this law firm from the very beginning.
