December 08, 2023

human resources interview recruitment jobEmployment and labor disputes encompass a wide range of issues, from wrongful termination to discrimination and wage disputes. When these conflicts arise, they can significantly impact your business; seeking business litigation lawyers in Palm Harbor, FL, is crucial.

  • Wrongful Termination: Claims of wrongful termination arise when an employee believes their dismissal was illegal. This could be due to alleged violation of anti-discrimination laws, breach of contract, or retaliation for whistleblower activities.
  • Wage and Hour Disputes: These disputes involve disagreements over pay, overtime calculations, classification of employees, and compliance with minimum wage laws. They are among the most common issues in employment law.
  • Harassment in the Workplace: Harassment claims, particularly those involving sexual harassment, are sensitive issues requiring careful legal handling. They can arise from alleged hostile work environments or unwanted conduct based on sex, race, or other factors.
  • Retaliation Claims: When employees file complaints or participate in investigations, they are protected from retaliation. Claims of retaliatory actions by employers can lead to complex litigation.
  • Employee Misclassification: Disputes can also arise from misclassifying employees as independent contractors, which affects their rights and benefits under employment law.
