Reasons to Work with a Florida Employment Lawyer

 Posted on February 28, 2023 in Business Law

Pompano Beach Contract Dispute LawyerThere are many aspects of a business that company owners need to stay on top of. One of these areas is employment law. As an employer, you need to make sure you are adhering to all federal, state, and even municipal rules and regulations. Even a minor oversight can end up mushrooming into a very expensive legal problem for a company. The following are some of the more common issues that an employment attorney can assist you with. For more detailed information about your company, contact The Elliot Legal Group, P.A..

Drafting and Evaluating Legal Documentation

Federal and Florida statutes require employers to have many different types of policies in place – and those policies need to be in written form. Subjects that should be addressed include operational procedures, company policies, safety policies, and more. These are all considered legally binding documents. In order to make sure all of these policies are within government requirements, it is important to have an employment attorney create and/or evaluate any policies or other documents that will be put in place for employees.


In addition to written policies, there are many federal and state anti-discrimination laws that employers must be compliant with. Companies are required to have written policies in place regarding no discrimination based on:

  • Race

  • Color

  • Sex

  • Age

  • National origin

  • Religion

  • Disability

In addition to being compliant with discrimination policies, companies must also stay compliant with the Occupational Safety and Health Administration (OSHA) guidelines and regulations and environmental regulations put in place by the Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) and the Florida Department of Environmental Protection (DEP).

Defending Against Complaints or Other Issues

Even if an employer follows all the rules and regulations, there are still situations where they may find an employee has filed a complaint against them or is taking other legal action. Your employment lawyer can represent and defend your company against:

  • Wage and hour lawsuits

  • Union issues

  • Workers’ compensation lawsuits

  • Third-party claims

  • Non-compete agreement disputes

  • Wrongful termination claims

  • Employment discrimination lawsuits
