Retaliation

What is Retaliation?

Employment law experts say best practice is to speak with a Miami and Florida attorney before confronting your employer and/or reporting to appropriate agencies and authorities. Florida employment law prevents employers from taking adverse actions against employees who do the following:

  • File a Complaint about Workplace Discrimination
    • It is illegal for an employer to terminate, threaten termination, intimidate or coerce employees in response to said employee's discrimination claim.
  • File a Workers' Compensation Claim
    • It is illegal for an employer to discharge, threaten to discharge, intimidate, or coerce any employee who files or attempts to file a workers' compensation claim.
  • Request Unpaid Wages
    • It is illegal for an employer to withhold any money you earned at work; requesting the pay your due is not grounds for dismissal.
  • Request Reasonable Accommodation and/or Medical/Family Medical Leave Act (FMLA)
    • It is illegal for an employer to respond to an employee's request for a reasonable accommodation or medical leave with retaliation. You have the right to take time away for a serious medical condition or to request an accommodation to help you complete your job duties that are not overwhelming to the employer.
  • Report, Threaten to Report or Refuse to Participate in Illegal Behavior
    • It is illegal for an employer to intimidate employees who reveal illegal, illicit, and/or unethical corporate practices that could lead to governmental fines, criminal investigations, and/or charges.

Where can I actually begin. An Law Firm gets 5 across the board without a doubt because the explain everything to you step by step. They always updated me with text, email or phone calls informing me of every single move they made. Also most import, they won my case in efficient time. The best part of all, I didn't even have to do anything! Stefany
