West Palm Beach Employment Law Attorney

Labor Attorneys in West Palm Beach, FL

Your employer is not above the law just because they have the power to terminate your employment. If your employer has been taking advantage of you in any way, the Sconzo Law Office, P.A. can step in and assist you. Whether you’re a victim of wage theft, discrimination, or workplace harassment, you can count on our skilled and compassionate West Palm Beach employment attorneys to protect your rights and hold your employer accountable.

Everything You Need to Know About Employee Rights

Both state and federal labor laws are in place to protect employees and ensure that all workers are treated fairly and compensated appropriately. Many individual Florida counties have their own protections as well, many of which expand upon the state and federal laws, and our labor attorneys in West Palm Beach, FL have all the information you need.

Federal and state laws that grant employees specific legal rights include:

  • The Fair Labor Standards Act which ensures workers receive the minimum wage.
  • The Family and Medical Leave Act (FMLA) of 1993, which allows certain workers to take job-protected leave to take care of their families or themselves.
  • The Civil Rights Act of 1964, which made it illegal for businesses to discriminate based on race, color, religion, sex, or national origin.
  • The Age Discrimination in Employment Act, or ADEA, and the Older Workers Benefit Protection Act (OWBPA) which protect employees 40 and up from age discrimination.
  • The Americans with Disabilities Act, or ADA which protect employees with disabilities from discrimination and requires employers to grant reasonable accommodations in the workplace.
  • The Florida Civil Rights Act (FCRA), which prohibits discrimination in the workplace based on race, age, gender, disability, and other factors.

Unfortunately, however, there are several limitations and even problems with these laws. Many do not cover employees who work in jobs that employ less than 20 people. The burden of proof is often on the affected employee’s shoulders. Plus, these laws sometimes come with strict deadlines (known as “statutes of limitations”) and set legal procedures, meaning your case can be thrown out if filed too late or incorrectly. For these reasons, we highly recommend consulting with a West Palm Beach employment law attorney near you regarding the facts of your specific case.
