5 steps to collecting unpaid overtime

If you work overtime and are a nonexempt employee, the law requires your employer to pay you a premium rate. While working longer or more frequent shifts may be tiring, it may be worth it due to the increase in pay. However, if you are not seeing your extra hours reflecting in your paychecks, your employer may be trying to avoid paying you what you deserve. 

Are you being subjected to sexualized behavior at work?

If you experience a feeling of discomfort on a daily basis related to the behavior of your coworkers or supervisors, you might want to stop and consider whether you're being sexually harassed. Indeed, the strange thing about sexual harassment is the fact that victims don't always realize what's happening until it's too late -- when they're truly suffering from the abuse.

Take these steps if you're a victim of sexual harassment

The experience of being sexually harassed at work is one of the most demoralizing things that any employee could ever have to endure. Unfortunately, even though the #MeToo movement has been going strong, this awful behavior has continued throughout Florida workplaces, and the only way victims can ever hope to make it stop is to stand up for their rights as soon as they realize they're being victimized.

Understanding overtime and holiday pay in Florida

Your workweeks may seem to last forever, especially as the year comes to a close. With the holiday season in full swing, you may work overtime. Your boss may even need you to come in during a holiday. You could have some questions about the rate of pay you deserve as you work harder. 

Can managers get fired for sexual harassment retaliation?

Managers in Florida workplaces have been known to retaliate against workers who report their sexual harassment. The threat of retaliation is sometimes enough to keep workers silent about the wrongful behavior they've endured. However, workers should know that the victims of sexual harassment are on the right side of the law even if they don't prevail in their sexual harassment complaints and employment-related retaliation lawsuits.
