Wage & Hour Rights

When you go to work in Florida, you expect that your employer will pay you a reasonable salary for your work and treat you fairly. Things were not always this way, however. In times past, employees were at the mercy of their employers. An employer could refuse to pay wages to his or her employees, could force employees to work long hours in unsafe conditions, and terminate an employee for any reason at all. Now, employees in Florida and around the nation are protected by legislation that gives them certain rights, as well as remedies for when an employer does violate their rights. Understanding employment law is important in ensuring your employer treats you fairly and will help you know what to do when you feel your rights have been violated.



Ayo and Iken can appeal your final judgment. Come in to discuss your divorce appeal or custody appeal today in our Tampa, or New Port Richey office.
