Why You Need a Florida Employment Law Firm
Discrimination, harassment, and illegal conduct on the job takes many forms. It could be a manager’s improper behavior toward employees of a certain race. Maybe it’s a supervisor’s constant sexually suggestive remarks that make their assistant feel uncomfortable and unsafe. Or a worker being terminated because they reported unethical or illegal activity in their workplace to their bosses or a government agency.
But you have rights. Several state and federal laws provide workers with legal protections, including:
Despite these protections, calling out an employer’s illegal activity and fighting back against employment discrimination or workplace harassment is challenging. When a worker faces off against their employer, the company usually has an attorney to represent their side of things. If that worker doesn’t have a lawyer of their own, they must navigate numerous claims, pore through rigorous procedures, and endure a maddening, time-consuming process. Add to this the fact that companies have wide latitude when they make employment-related decisions – so they know how to mask discriminatory motives as legitimate business decisions.
But an experienced Tallahassee employment law firm can level the playing field for you. At Cruz Law, our book of courtroom and settlement conference victories includes some of Florida’s most egregious cases of discrimination, harassment, and retaliation. We’ve recovered more than $15 million for clients in employment-based legal matters.
