Defense of Claims
Below are some of the legal services we offer to our management clients:
Wage and Hour Issues under the Fair Labor Standards Act (FLSA): Our firm routinely assists businesses to ensure compliance with the minimum wage, overtime and record keeping requirements mandated by the Fair Labor Standards Act (FLSA). Additionally, we represent companies in audits conducted by the Wage and Hour Division of the U.S. Department of Labor, as well as in defense of private litigation brought by current and former employees against businesses seeking back wages and overtime pay.
Proactive Investigation of Administrative Charges: A significant part of our management practice involves assisting in-house counsel, executive management teams and human resources departments with the timely investigation of administrative charges from various state and federal agencies, such as the U.S. Equal Employment Opportunity Commission (EEOC) and the Florida Commission on Human Relations (FCHR). We conduct comprehensive and discrete investigations and interviews in defense of these charges, as well as assisting our clients with the organization and presentation of thorough responses to any such charges.
Employment Defense Litigation: Our firm aggressively protects and defends our business clients against employment-related discrimination claims in our state and federal courts. Additionally, we frequently represent companies in connection with the mediation and arbitration of employment-related disputes.
