Protecting Businesses in Florida
In our experience, Defending Employers in FLSA claims requires experience and background in business law. The current case cannot be seen as isolated situation but a potential test case for further employee and ex-employees litigation. A careful strategy in the litigation should be paired with adjustments in the current business operations.
Employees and ex-employees will utilize both Federal and Florida law to gain an advantage over employers. The fundamentals of these labor laws was to protect the underpaid and disadvantaged employee. However, some employees (and ex-employees) have flooded the system and utilized these laws to take advantage of employers‘ fear of litigation (and cost of litigation) to gain a quick settlement.
