South Florida continues attempts to combat wage theft

Broward County might be the first county in Florida to implement a wage theft ordinance in the aftermath of a report that called the state the 15th worst in the nation when it comes to workers' abilities to recover unpaid wages. Broward County currently has the third largest number of wage-theft cases--those that involve workers not being paid overtime or minimum wage, being forced to work off the clock, or not being paid at all--in the state.

Florida State College administrator punished for blowing whistle?

The Florida Whistleblower Act protects employees, in both the private and public sector, from being terminated or retaliated against for reporting illegal activity. The details of the whistleblower law apply different standards to employees of the government as opposed to employees of private companies, but all employees are generally protected from being fired or treated unfairly for speaking up.

Is there bias toward women in your Florida workplace?

Here in South Florida, and throughout the country, many people like to think that workplace inequality between men and women is a thing of the past. And while the more obvious and accepted forms of workplace discrimination and sexual harassment have gone by the wayside, more subtle forms of gender bias do still exist.
