Contract disputes and negotiations in Stuart, FL
Our lawyers can negotiate favorable employment contract terms on your behalf. When workplace contract disputes arise, we take prompt, decisive action to resolve the matter as quickly and positively as possible.
Wrongful termination in West Palm Beach
Even though Florida is an employment at-will state, your employer must abide by the laws regarding the treatment of employees. Our team may advise you to sue your employer for wrongful termination if your employer breached your contract, discriminated against you or is retaliating against you for reporting illegal conduct in your workplace.
Private employers are permitted to conduct drug tests on their employees in high-risk sectors — such as in transportation, aviation, childcare, healthcare or law enforcement. In addition, your employer may perform tests randomly or upon reasonable suspicion of drug use. However, you may have a cause of action if your employer unfairly conducted the tests or the results were inaccurate.
Family Medical Leave Act
The Family Medical Leave Act (FMLA) is a landmark law that gives workers the right to take a leave of absence to recover from or get treatment for a medical condition or to care of a family member who has a medical condition. Our lawyers help you to exercise this important right and to hold your employer accountable for violating the legislation.
Determining what happens when you leave your job can be just as important as the terms of your employment. Our firm can negotiate a fair severance package with your employer. If your employer withholds your rightful severance, we can help you recover the money and benefits you were promised.
Sexual harassment in the workplace
You have the right to work in a harassment-free workplace. This means you do not have to put up with a hostile work environment or unwanted sexual advances. We help you stop sexual harassment and recover the damages you are entitled to.
By creating clear, constructive policies and procedures, companies can protect themselves from litigation and foster a more productive, dedicated workforce. These policies and procedures should be contained in a well-drafted employee handbook. With almost three decades of experience in resolving workplace issues, the founding attorney of our law firm, Louis P. Pfeffer is able to provide businesses with valuable assistance in developing effective policies and procedures and in drafting their employee handbooks.
