Local Florida whistle-blowers must blow whistle at local boss

Workers in Florida who report the illegal conduct or fraud of their employers are generally protected from being fired for doing so under federal or state employment laws. Such workers are called whistle-blowers, and whistle-blowers tend to be protected from experiencing retaliation for blowing the whistle. This does still happen, but when workers are fired for blowing a whistle they may seek job reinstatement and financial compensation.

Can Florida employers require workers to speak English at work?

Here in South Florida, many residents are not native English speakers. In the workplace, however, many employers require employees to speak English, which can become an employment law problem.

Class action: Florida company skirted overtime and wage laws

The recent spike in wage theft cases in Florida has been a frequent topic on this employment law blog. Of course, one of the most common methods of wage theft is failing to pay workers properly for overtime hours. Under the Fair Labor Standards Act, employers must pay non-exempt workers time and one half for all hours worked in excess of 40 in a week.

Does your Florida employer have to give you time off to vote?

After a long campaign season, Election Day is almost upon us. Many South Florida residents may have already cast their votes due to an increased publicity effort to get people to vote early in this election. In fact, it has been estimated that as many as one in six Florida voters may have voted early this time around, and in some counties about half of the voters are expected to vote early. Some voters, however, will not vote early and they might be wondering how to best fit voting into their schedules on Tuesday.
