Employment Lawyer In Fort Lauderdale, Florida

Federal and state laws govern many aspects of the employer-employee relationship. These laws provide you with protections to prevent you from being denied employment, advancement or promotion, or terminated for a variety of reasons.

Know Your Rights As An Employee

Unfortunately, these laws do not always prevent an employer from violating your rights as an employee, whether intentionally or unintentionally. Violation of your rights can impact your wages, benefits (i.e. health care, retirement planning, etc.), potential for advancement, long-term career goals, employment status, and quality of life. You and your family need to know your rights as an employee in order to protect yourself.

When your employment rights are violated, you may be hesitant to speak with your employer out of fear of demotion or even termination. Even when you do approach your employer, you may be discouraged from pursuing any action or even told you have no rights. If you feel your rights have been violated, you should speak with an employment law attorney.
