Employment Rights Violations
Being fired or let go from your job can be extremely stressful and difficult. Not only is it emotionally destructive but can cause serious financial and emotional hardships for you and your loved ones. When you accept a position at a company, there are certain rights and obligations within the employer-employee professional relationship. This not only refers to your current employer but any past employers as well.
Legal disputes involving businesses and their employees or job applicants are quite common here in Florida. Generally, these disputes relate to employee rights and any violations against these rights. On the other side, employers also have rights that can be compromised. If you are in the middle of an employment right violation and need a lawyer, please contact Wormington & Bollinger today.
