Weston Attorneys For Employee Rights Concerns
Not everyone “lives for work,” but most people’s happiness and overall well-being are affected very directly by their working conditions and relationships with employers. Discrimination or sexual harassment on the job can make every day seem like a nightmare. An unjust, illegal firing could be one of the greatest setbacks you ever face. Signing a noncompete agreement without having a qualified lawyer review it could be a mistake you seriously regret.
On the other side of this equation, business leaders and companies face an imposing challenge as they strive to comply with ever-evolving federal and state employment laws governing employee rights. At Cornell & Associates PA in Broward County, Florida, we provide counsel and representation to both employees and employers based on founding attorney Ware Cornell’s 35-plus years of experience in negotiations and at trial in federal and state courts.
Decades Of Experience Seeking Justice For Wronged Employees And Advising Employers
Mr. Cornell’s outstanding credentials as a trial lawyer and reputation for integrity make our firm a premier resource for wide-ranging employment law concerns in the Fort Lauderdale and Miami metro areas and elsewhere in Florida, including those involving:
- Sexual harassment allegations arising from unwanted touching, quid pro quo demands for sexual favors, tolerance of a hostile work environment or other circumstances
- Race discrimination in the workplace, as well as employment discrimination based on national origin, gender, pregnancy or disability — and claims under the Uniformed Services Employment and Reemployment Rights Act of 1994 (USERRA)
- Age discrimination, an area of rapidly increasing concern for workers over 40 and employers that must make sensitive decisions on hirings, firings, layoffs and cutbacks
- The enforceability of noncompete agreements and other employment contracts, as well as disputes over these agreements that can lead to hard-fought litigation
- Denials of employee rights under the Family and Medical Leave Act (FMLA), along with potentially wrongful termination in retaliation for exercising these rights
