ADA lawsuit: Boynton Beach man fired because of medical condition

Under the Americans with Disabilities Act, workers with health conditions here in South Florida cannot be discriminated against in the workplace. Rather, in most cases, their employers must make accommodations as needed. Of course, employers do not always comply with the ADA and this results in very unnecessary and difficult consequences for employees.

Study: whistle blowers experience more retaliation than ever

Those who follow employment law news in South Florida may have noticed many stories lately about whistle blowers netting large settlements. The term "whistle blower" is generally used to describe an employee who exposes or reports the wrongdoing of his or her employer.

Employer can be held responsible if a third-party harasses workers

Here in South Florida, most people know that sexual harassment is illegal. In the workplace, if an employee is being harassed by a co-worker or his or her boss, that employee should be able to put a stop to it by complaining to a person of authority, such as a supervisor, human resources department, or even police or employment law attorneys in some cases. However, many people do not realize that protections also exist to prevent workers from being harassed by third-parties in the workplace.
