FYI: Your doctor might be able to "order you to self-isolate" but they cannot order your employer to do anything. Even if your employer is as stupid as they look, you must either do what they say or take the consequence. Your doctor cannot help you; neither can Florida law.
I need a consultation regarding my landlord that I've been renting a room for about 2 months. I've been unable to stay this entire month because she filed false allegations against me that caused an injunction. I've read that filing false allegations are criminal and I intend to sue... Read more »

My ex and I are not together due to domestic battery. I had a restraining order for two years and was not able to renew it because he had not contacted me. Since his battery charge against me he has been arrested 3 times for battery and convicted once. He and I own the house that my children and I... Read more »
I can read this incident another way: Perhaps your husband brought a cop with him when wanted to give his children something--at a time he knew you would not be there--just to be sure you could not renew your outdated domestic battery retraining order. He probably also wanted to avoid a nasty scene...Read more »
If I have to return the children to the other parent seven days prior to school recommencing on 2nd September at 8am, would this be on 26th August or specifically before 8am on the 26th? My understand is that it refers to a date rather than a time. This is written in a FL divorce agreement if this... Read more »

I'm unvaccinated and was exposed to Covid by a coworker at work. My job is requiring me to quarantine without pay for a minimum of 7 days. Are they allowed to withhold pay from me since I was exposed at work?
Yes. Private employers in Florida can do anything they want to their employees, as long as the reason they are doing it (or not doing) does not violate the Florida Civil Rights Act. You have two options: Get vaccinated and get "Covid pay" or refuse and get none.
I currently rent through an LLC, have been in this home for 10+ years.

About 6 weeks ago they blocked led my account due to someone other than me trying to access it. I have contacted them several times. The first time they emailed me back with some generic help to open my account back up. That did not work now they wont email me back despite the several emails I have... Read more »
Yes. Why? Because Florida is an “at will” state, which means private employers are free to hire, promote, demote, suspend, reinstate, fire and rehire employees for any reason at any time, i.e., “at will.” The only thing employers cannot do is make any of these adverse employment decisions...Read more »

If a moving party files a Motion and can not show for hearing what is proper procedure? Notice of cancellation with reasons or Withdraw the Motion itself? Is Motion basically withdrawn with a Notice to cancel anyway?
If you intend to re-schedule your motion to dismiss then call the opposing side to get an agreement to cancel the hearing; and then call the Judge's office to inform them. They may want you to file a "Consented Notice of Cancelation of Motion Hearing."
