Orlando Attorney for Employees
Wilson McCoy, P.A., represents employees in cases involving, among other things, employment discrimination (whether based on age, disability, gender, national origin, race, religion, sex, or veteran status), harassment, whistleblower/retaliation, medical leave, breach of contract, and wage and hour disputes. We equip our clients with the resources and experience needed to effectively fight back against unlawful employer conduct through private negotiation, mediation, the administrative process, or litigation.
Before taking legal action in your case, we take the time to understand your unique circumstances and personal objectives. Whether you are interested in protecting your job, or recovering financial compensation, we will handle your case in a manner tailored to accomplish those goals. You can trust that your case will be handled discreetly and that a high level of professionalism will be maintained throughout your case.
A major point of emphasis for our practice is representing employees in matters related to discrimination. There are various types of discrimination that can occur in the workplace, and employees often come to us with questions about whether or not employers have violated Florida statutes or federal laws dealing with discrimination.
These are often very complicated claims, and require extremely careful analysis to see if prohibited conduct has happened in each situation. Our Florida discrimination lawyers understand how to investigate these claims, and will work with you to determine if you may have options available to you.
At Wilson McCoy, P.A., we work tirelessly to defend employees in their disputes against their employers concerning their employment contracts. Whether occurring while employed or after termination, disputes over employment contracts frequently occur because the employer drafts for their own benefit, rather than the benefit of the employee.
Reviewing Employment Contracts
All employees should strongly consider reviewing their employment contracts or severance packages with an experienced employment attorney, as these terms will forever impact one’s salary, benefits, or future ability to work. At Wilson McCoy, P.A., we use our 60 years of combined experience to thoroughly review and discuss all the options and alternatives available to you, and counsel you in preparation for any negotiation with a current or future employer. We will assure your rights are protected in your employment contract.
Employment Contract Disputes
Although disputes arising from wage and hour issues, noncompete and nondisclosure agreements, severance packages, or other contractual obligations, are common among employers and employees, our firm takes the time necessary to become familiar with your unique needs and concerns in order to tailor the best approach to resolve your legal matter, in or out of court. Our firm is prepared to assert your rights under your employment contract when challenging the terms of the contract or an employer’s breach of the contract, in order to protect your job or interests under the contract.
Do not hesitate to call us to learn more about the options available to you under your employment contract.
Wage and Hour Disputes
There are state and federal laws that apply to employers in regards to how employees must be paid. A wage and hour case can happen when an employer disregards these laws. Examples of these behaviors include misclassifying an employee, failing to pay overtime, or other actions that do not provide an employee with wages or benefits that he or she has earned. Our firm has more than 60 years of combined experience fighting for the rights of employees faced with wage and hour issues, including those for unpaid overtime, commissions, bonuses, benefits, and other related contractual rights.
Employees challenging an employer based on any of the matters above face the fear of losing their job or reputation in their chosen field. At Wilson McCoy, P.A., we take a big picture look at your case. We sit down with you to determine what is most important to you, and seek to resolve your claims according to your goals in the most efficient manner possible.
