ORLANDO EMPLOYER AND EMPLOYEE WORK MATTERS
A Balanced Perspective
As one of the few law firms in Florida which represents both employees and employers, Wilson McCoy maintains a balanced perspective with each of its cases. A balanced perspective not only gives us a “sneak peek” at our opponent’s playbook, it also allows us to adapt to nearly any situation. Whether it is defending a business or advocating the rights of an individual, we use our experience to forecast our opponent’s next move.
Discrimination and harassment in the workplace can occur in a variety of forms, including decisions related to hiring, firing, pay, promotions and other actions which adversely affect an employee. Generally, however, such decisions must be made on the protected characteristics such as sex, gender, pregnancy, disability, race, age, national origin, religion, military and other leave status. Our Orlando employment attorneys fight for the rights of employees who face discrimination and defend employers who face discrimination claims.
Reporting or objecting to unlawful conduct can be a scary and formidable process. While employees may want to speak up about violations, they are often afraid of losing their jobs. Our Orlando labor lawyers help employees through the whistleblowing process and explain their rights when their employers learn of the complaint. Our Orlando employment lawyers also assist employers who face whistleblower situations by formulating strategies to avoid claims of retaliation and to take corrective action when required.
Although it may seem simple, the concept of paying employees and contractors for work performed can be an extremely complex process. With laws regulating compensation structures, commissions, overtime and payment of PTO, it is easy for violations to occur. Our Orlando labor attorneys assist both employers and employees in making sure employees are paid as required by the law.
Noncompetition agreements are enforceable so long as specific criteria are met. Generally, such agreements are entered into at the start of employment with the goal of precluding employees from competing, performing specific work, soliciting clients or revealing skills or trade secrets to a competitor after an employee has ceased working for the employer. Our Orlando labor attorneys help employers draft and enforce noncompetition agreements and employees escape those agreements that are overboard or otherwise unenforceable.
Breach Of Contract:
Agreements are made and agreements are broken, often resulting in an actionable breach. Whether it is an employment, executive compensation, partnership, asset & purchase, shareholder or any other form of agreement, our Orlando employment lawyers help employers and employees resolve the simplest and most complex contractual matters through negotiation or, when necessary, litigation.
Every business has a starting point. But, whether that starting point was the correct starting point is often overlooked. Our attorneys help startups do things right from the start, and we help guide small businesses and larger employers in the right direction when their day-to-day operations aren’t quite aligned with the law.
