Labor and Employment

Our Firm has represented numerous private and public employers and agencies (such as the Department of Insurance and Department of Financial Services) in suits filed by employees, handling both the administrative proceedings before the Equal Employment Opportunity Commission (EEOC) or local agencies, as well as in any resulting litigation in both state and federal courts. We also represent management in labor negotiations and related matters with its unionized employees. Our firm’s labor and employment law practice covers the entire spectrum of labor and employment litigation: arbitration, administrative practice before the EEOC and the Labor Department, federal contract compliance, wage-hour standards, workers’ compensation, and client counseling under federal and state labor and employment laws. We also deal extensively with issues such as due process and name clearing hearings, qualified immunity, unionization, grievance proceedings and arbitrations. We have also drafted and updated Policy and Procedure Manuals for both private and public employers, including updates as to current laws and regulations, conducting in-house training to upper management in procedural applications thereof. Our employment practice group also counsels clients in employment matters across the United States, London, France and Germany, and has and does litigate numerous employment cases in the Northern, Middle and Southern District Federal Courts in Florida, as well as in Florida’s State Courts and the Florida Division of Administrative Hearings.
