Tampa Employment Attorney

Our purpose: to provide hands-on representation for a select number of workers that are subjected to unlawful employment practices by their employers. At Florin Gray Bouzas Owens, LLC, we are committed to being passionate advocates for our clients, while aggressively litigating matters with integrity.

Florida Employment Lawyer

Florida employers must comply with employment laws throughout the process of hiring and firing employees for a business.

These laws help to protect those individuals applying for a job, and, in the end, they also protect the employer from a hefty lawsuit. Laws are in place to be sure that employees receive a fair wage for their work and keep employers from making unfair demands on employees.

Florida’s Minimum Wage

Employers must pay employees a fair and working salary according to federal law. The minimum wage for an employee in the state of Florida is $8.25 per hour, a dollar more than the federal requirement. Overtime benefits start for anyone making minimum wage who currently works more than 40 hours per week.

Discrimination Cases We Handle

Employment law covers a wide span of rights, duties, and obligations between employers and employees. Every part of employment from the job application to terminating an employee, must abide by rules and regulations to stay within the law. Knowing where your case fits on the spectrum can help you understand your rights and potential legal opportunities.

We represent workers—not corporations—for claims against discrimination, harassment, retaliation, and wage and hour/overtime issues. In many situations, the best mechanism for protecting employee’s rights is through class action lawsuits and collective actions. That is why we thoroughly analyze every potential case before we start the litigation process.

Types of Discrimination Cases:

1.) Unlawful Discrimination. This includes claims of discrimination based on race, gender, sex, religion, national origin, color, disability, or failure to hire or promote an individual of a protected class.

2.) Sexual HarassmentUnwanted actions, behaviors, requests, or advances of a sexual nature.

3.) Harassment. Any type of actions towards an employee that are “severe or pervasive” enough to create a hostile work environment. 

3.) Disability Discrimination or Failing to Accommodate. An employer legally must provide reasonable accommodations for religious observances and practices, and disabilities. Refusing to reasonably accommodate these needs can lead to a charge of employment discrimination.

4.) Wage and hour violations. If an employer has failed to obey to federal and statewide minimum wage and overtime laws, which can result in an employment action.

5.) Retaliation. Cases of punishment against an employee for filing a complaint with the Equal Employment Opportunity Commission or Occupational Safety and Health Administration. Retaliation can take the form of a demotion, pay cut, or wrongful termination, for example.

6.) Wrongful terminationAn employer might have wrongfully terminated an employee if it fired the employee for several illegal reasons, including termination due to a protected class, out of retaliation, or pregnancy.

7.) Unsafe work environment. Toxic chemicals, slip and fall hazards, defective products, and negligent employers can result in serious personal injuries and illnesses.
