Since people spend so much time at the workplace, it’s fundamental that safe working environments are established and maintained by employers. That’s why in the United States, federal and state laws have been established to protect people at work. When employers fail to protect their employees from harassment, discrimination, or intimidation at work, employees have the right to file a claim against them.

Unfortunately, people being treated unfairly in the workplace is not as uncommon as it should be, and when it happens, it can make life miserable. If you or a loved one has experienced repeated harassment or discrimination in the workplace, you should contact a knowledgeable Florida employment lawyer who can help you hold the responsible parties accountable.

At Brenton Legal P.A., we understand that “blowing the whistle” on your employer or fellow worker can be stressful and scary. That’s why our compassionate team of talented employment law lawyers in Florida is dedicated to protecting the rights of employees who’ve been wrongly treated in the workplace.

Employment Law Cases We Handle

At Brenton Legal P.A., we specialize in Florida employment Law. Over the years, we’ve represented thousands of clients in Florida in all types of workplace discrimination cases.

Listed below are some of the most common cases we see in Florida:

  • Discrimination, whether based on gender, age, disability, religious belief or pregnancy, should not be tolerated in the workplace.
  • Sexual harassment. There are several types of sexual harassment that can occur in the workplace. Unwelcome sexual advances, sexual jokes or language, unwelcome touching, and other hostile actions can be threatening and offensive.
  • Retaliation. If you assert your rights as an employee, and are fired, demoted, or threatened because of it, this could be considered retaliation and is illegal. Sometimes this happens to employees who raise a discrimination complaint, act as witnesses for other worker’s complaints, or raise questions around workplace safety.
  • Wrongful termination. There are certain situations where you cannot be fired. For example, if you have been injured on the job and that causes you to miss work, if you speak up about safety or other violations on the job, or if you take a protected leave of absence under the Family and Medical Leave Act.
  • Violations of wages and hour laws. There are certain minimum wages, state and federal, as well as overtime wages, that must be paid. When an employee fails to meet these obligations, they are breaking the law and should be held accountable.
  • Breach of contract. If you are terminated in violation of your contract, you should speak with an experienced attorney as soon as possible.

While these are some of the most common types of discrimination and harassment in Florida, discrimination and harassment can manifest in innumerable forms. Being the victim of any type of discrimination or harassment at work is not easy, and you shouldn’t have to bear the burden alone. Call an experienced Florida employment attorney today for help.

Florida workplace discrimination & harassment claims

Many types of discrimination in employment and housing are prohibited under the Federal Civil Rights Act and Florida’s Civil Rights act, including sexual and racial harassment. Harassment is defined as any unwelcome verbal, visual or physical conduct that creates a hostile work environment or affects an employee’s ability to do their job and feel safe in the workplace. This can include name-calling, catcalling, insults, bullying, offensive gestures or racial or sexual slurs, intimidation acts or bullying.
For a harassment claim to be successful, however, usually you must prove that there was a pattern of behavior occurring at work that continued to repeat itself. If you or a loved one is experiencing harassment at the workplace, it can be helpful to write down each time the harassment occurs so that you have a record of what took place.

Florida labor laws and employment claims

Florida is considered a “right to work” state. This means workers have the right to belong to unions if they wish and protect themselves against retaliation from employees for actions like speaking up about safety concerns or workplace discrimination. There are several other federal and state laws that affect Florida workers and employers. Listed below are three of the most important:

  • Title VII of the Civil Rights Act. Passed in 1964, this is one of the most important pieces of worker rights legislation in the history of the country. It prohibits discrimination in nearly all workplace circumstances that employ 15 or more persons based on race, religion, gender, color, pregnancy or country of origin.
  • Equal Pay Act. This landmark piece of legislation passed in 1963, prohibiting the discrimination of the payment of wages based on sex.
  • Age Discrimination in Employment Act. Passed in 1967, this US labor law forbid employers to discriminate against anyone 40 years or older.

Of course, employers are also required to meet federal and state minimum wage and overtime laws. When employers fail to protect their employees or pay them fairly, they must be held responsible for their negligence.
