Discriminatory firing and wrongful termination suits

When a Miami employee is wrongfully terminated, it means that the employee was terminated from his or her job in a way that violated federal or state law. One of the most common categories of wrongful termination is discriminatory firing. This means that an individual was fired as a result of his or her race, religion, national origin, sexual preference, sex, disability, age, pregnancy status or another protected status.

Stop sexual harassment as soon as it starts

Miami employees have the right to work in an office or workplace that is completely free of unwanted sexual advances, sexual comments and harassment. In fact, those who are being subjected to this kind of abuse can and should make an immediate complaint to their supervisors without any fear of retaliation.

What information should a non-compete agreement include?

A non-compete agreement, also known as a covenant not to compete, may seem like a very straightforward contract. The truth is that it is a very subjective type of agreement. This type of document relies on factors and details specific to the situation for it to be enforceable. If the document is clearly written and presents reasonable arguments, the court is likely to uphold the contract.

The difference between a minor and material breach of contract

The purpose of any business contract, including for employment, is to make the agreement and responsibilities between two or more parties explicit and legally binding. However, it doesn't guarantee the parties will fulfill their ends of the contract. When this happens, it's an actual breach of contract, and the harmed party can take legal action against the one who made the breach. The type of breach determines whether or not the affected party still has to perform its duties and maintain the contract. The two main types of actual breaches are minor and material.
