Legal battle brewing over whether Uber drivers are employees

It used to be that after a late flight, night on the town or any sort of car trouble that a person's first call was to a local taxi service to arrange a ride, something that could result in a considerable wait.

Florida House passes restrictive wage, sick-time bill

As we have previously discussed in this Broward County Employment Law Blog, several Florida counties have enacted or worked on local ordinances regarding wages and sick time. In Miami-Dade and Broward counties, ordinances exist that require companies that work with the counties to pay workers wages that are higher than the federal minimum wage.

Sharon Stone's nanny alleges wrongful termination, harassment

It is very important that all Broward County employers understand how both federal and Florida state wage and hour laws effect their payroll. Sometimes, smaller businesses have trouble navigating these statutes. This is for a number of reasons including the fact that small businesses usually have an owner that must wear many hats, including those of accountant and human resources manager. Additionally, the roles can be more casual in small business or in personal contractor relationships, which can lead employment issues to fall by the wayside.
