The descriptions below provide an overview of some of the most common cases handled by our team. Call us now to schedule a free consultation and get started on building your case regarding an employment issue such as one of the following:
- Civil service hearings: If you have experienced a violation of Florida’s employment laws in a government workplace, we can help you request a civil service hearing to address your grievances. Knowledgeable employment law attorney Craig Berman has many years of trial experience and is intimately acquainted with the Hillsborough County and Pinellas County civil service boards.
- Employment contract disputes: When you agree to an employment or service contract, both you and your employer are required to uphold your ends of the deal. Unfortunately, this does not always happen. If you are embroiled in a contract dispute with your employer, a vendor or contractor, or another commercial entity, attorney Craig Berman can help you take steps to protect your rights and interests.
- Workplace discrimination and harassment: It is illegal to discriminate against employees due to their status as protected class members. If you have experienced discrimination or harassment on the basis of your race, skin color, national origin, religion, sex, disability, age, citizenship status, genetic information, marital status, HIV/AIDS diagnosis or sickle cell trait, attorney Craig Berman can help you fight this injustice and correct the situation.
- Wage and hour disputes: Common disputes over wages and hours worked include issues pertaining to overtime pay, rest periods, minimum wage and more. Craig Berman is well-versed in these laws and can help you pursue an appropriate legal remedy.
- Family medical leave violations: Most Florida employers are required to allow employees to take up to 12 weeks of absence in the event of a family medical emergency. This includes pregnancy. If you were denied leave for a legitimate medical reason or if your employer retaliated after you took leave legitimately, your employer may very well be in violation of the family medical leave act (FMLA). We can help you take the necessary steps to seek legal recourse.
- Whistleblower protection: Retaliation against whistleblowers is illegal. If you have been subjected to unfair treatment due to reporting a problem at work, you may have a valid legal claim against your employer for allowing whistleblower discrimination. Attorney Craig Berman can represent you to put a stop to this treatment and/or get you compensated appropriately
- Unemployment appeals: Were you denied compensation despite meeting the requirements for unemployment benefits? If so, Craig Berman can help you request an appeal of your unemployment claim denial. He will appear with you in court to defend your right to claim those benefits. Contact our firm as soon as possible to initiate this process, as you can only claim payment for one week prior to filing your application.
