State and federal anti-discrimination laws prohibit an employer from discriminating on the basis of age, race, gender, sexual orientation, disability, marital status, pregnancy, familial status (having children), religion or national origin. We have handled hundreds of unlawful discrimination cases, from filing a complaint to full trial, involving Title VII and the Florida Civil Rights Act, the Americans with Disabilities Act (ADA) and the Family and Medical Leave Act (FMLA). A discriminatory action can include: not being hired, being fired, denied training, not being promoted, being demoted, receiving less pay, etc. You can count on us to protect your civil rights.

If you win a case against an employer in Florida, you may receive:

  • Reinstatement, if you lost your job
  • Back pay if you lost money or missed out on a raise
  • Reinstatement of benefits lost
  • Monetary damages for emotional distress
  • Protecting Rights of Employees Before the EEOC

It is a basic right for all of us to be treated fairly and with dignity. This is especially true within the business world and there are federal laws that specifically protect employees from being discriminated in all work-related areas. These laws are often referred to as Equal Employment Opportunity (EEO) laws. The EEO laws makes it illegal for a workplace to discriminate or treat an employee unfairly base on their race, sex, religion, age, disability, and other characteristics. If you feel that you were a victim of discrimination in the workplace, then you should contact us immediately. An attorney will be able to determine if your rights were violated and will be able to make sure you are fully compensated for the unfairness you had to endure.

EEO laws include the following legislation:

  • Title VII of the Civil Rights Act of 1964
  • Equal Pay Act of 1963
  • Age Discrimination in Employment Act of 1967
  • Title I and Title V of the Americans with Disabilities Act of 1990
  • Sections 501 and 505 of the Rehabilitation Act of 1973
  • Civil Rights Act of 1991

EEO Laws protect employees during all work-related activities. This includes everything from the hiring/recruiting process to job evaluations and promotions. There is no justification for the mistreatment of an employee and when such an event occurs, it is important that the situation is rectified immediately. We have the experience and knowledge of the employment laws and know how to apply them to get our clients the best possible outcome. If you were treated unfairly at your workplace, do not hesitate to speak one of our attorneys.
