Areas of Law Description
The Law Offices of Hoffman & Hoffman, P.A. provides legal representation on the following areas of practice:
- Employment Law
Our labor and employment law lawyers work hard to help each client reach the best possible outcome as quickly as possible. While this may happen through pretrial negotiations or in mediation, the employment law attorneys are trial attorneys and try cases when an otherwise reasonable solution cannot be reached with an employer. The firm's labor and employment law lawyers represent clients in a wide variety of employment and discrimination actions including: Whistleblower Actions; Sexual Harassment; Wage and Hour Claims (Fair Labor Standards Act); EEOC; Employment Contract and Agreements; Discrimination Claims; Americans With Disabilities Act Compliance Actions; Family Medical Leave Act FMLA; Retaliation Claims; Equal Pay Act Claims.
The Florida whistleblower statute contains protections where an employee complains in writing to an employer, as well as, certain situations where the employee provides no notice to the employer prior to initiating a lawsuit. The Florida whistleblower statute also provides an employee protection where he or she has testified, or has agreed to testify before a court or other governmental entity regarding an investigation into the employer's violation of a regulation, rule, or statute.
* Sexual Harassment
Any unwanted sexual advance or conduct that interferes with a person's work performance, is used as a condition of employment, or is used for making a personnel decision such as getting a raise or promotion can be considered sexual harassment. The most common form of sexual harassment is where the victim's experience is a "tangible employment action" taken against them which means that they were promoted, demoted, given a raise or not given a raise as a result of the sexual harassment. Sexual harassment can be from customers, union representatives, or members, co-workers and supervisors. Also, there can be sexual harassment between individuals of the same sex.
* Fair Labor Standards Act
Under the Fair Labor Standards Act (FLSA), commonly known as the “overtime law”, the federal minimum wage for a covered nonexempt employee is $7.25 per hour effective July 24, 2009. There are many types of exempt or non-overtime employment. For example, most employees of airlines such as pilots and line mechanics do not fall within the FLSA's overtime rules. Farm workers, executives, and certain commissioned sales employees are also exempt from the overtime provisions of the FLSA. FLSA requires that covered non-exempt employees receive at least the minimum wage, and at least one and one-half times their regular rates of pay (overtime) for hours worked over 40 in a workweek.
* Employment Discrimination
Employment Discrimination regardless of race, color, religion, sex, or national origin is unlawful in employment. Discriminatory conduct is prohibited by Title VII of the Civil Rights Act of 1964. The law also prohibits an employer, employment agency or labor organization to retaliate against you because you have filed a charge or complained about an unlawful employment practice.
