I'm a 16 year old wanting to go door to door selling a service or a product.
I want to go door to door selling a no soliciting sign, pretty ironic right.
I'm not sure where I saw it, but I saw that if what you're selling is under $25 you're not required to get... Read more »

Employer states it was advised that no refunds/returns would be accepted. I requested more information on where I could find that. Even after I told them to stop deduction they stated they will not.

There are no federal laws that require employers to offer any paid time off benefits. Under the Fair Labor Standards Act, employers are only required to pay their employees for the time they actually work. As a result, employers have a lot of discretion regarding paid time off policies if they... Read more »

If you're asking if you can sue simply because the termination was unfair or because it makes no sense, that reason alone is probably not sufficient to support a claim, other than a claim for Reemployment Assistance (unemployment comp) (if you qualify). In Fla., if you don't have an... Read more »
I took FMLA leave several times due to falling sick. I gave my employer “practical notice” in terms of timely notice, as I couldn’t predict being sick. Before a decision (approval/denial) was made on my FMLA (during the documentation submission time frame and then the 5 day processing to... Read more »

It's possible that you may have a case if your termination was discriminatory or in violation of federal law or agency policy. The EEOC investigates complaints of employment discrimination based on race, color, religion, sex, national origin, age, disability, or genetic information, so if you... Read more »
My daughter is being harras by 2 employees, from being bullied because of her race, given a task that such employees don't want to do, and getting yelled at in a degrading way being threatened to get fired if she complains. This situation has her anxiety and feels that even if she stands up to... Read more »

If your daughter is being harassed or discriminated against based on her race, she needs to bring this to the attention of human resources and/or her direct supervisor. After the supervisor is on notice, they have a duty to either separate the employees from your daughter, or discharge them. If... Read more »

Whether your niece can take legal action on the issue of separating from the school depends on what she means by "they asked her to resign." Does it mean that they basically asked if she'd be WILLING to resign, with her having the option of saying, "No, I want to return to work... Read more »

Are you an individual contractor, or you have a corporate or LLC entity? If you have an entity that is officially the contractor, you are required to have an attorney represent the entity in any court above small claims court, and if you don't have an attorney, the plaintiff will quickly...

Interesting question, actually. Florida Statute 501.022 requires such a permit but excludes minors (persons under the age of 18) from having to get a permit if they are under the supervision of a permit holder. But being a minor is not included in the grounds for denial of a permit. So... Read more »
I live in Florida and I am curious what background reporting regulations may be (Google has too many different answers to be sure what is correct).

I strongly suggest that you hire an employment lawyer to discuss this rather than ask all these very important questions here on this public website. The fee for speaking to most experienced employment lawyers is very reasonable. Search for one using the website's Find a Lawyer tab.
My husband cut his hand at work. It was very minor. His employer thought it would be a good idea to go to a doctor and file a claim with workmans comp. My husband told his employer he smoked marijuana and had a prescription, they said it was fine so against his better judgement and at the request... Read more »

Work comp shouldn't be requiring random drug testing as it relates to the injury and original date of accident unless the authorized treating physician is prescribing medications and drug testing is medically necessary. However, the employer may have a drug free workplace program in place but... Read more »

You should contact a Florida employment attorney to discuss this situation further, as this will be a highly fact-intensive situation.

Yes, yes, yes, and yes, your employer can do all these things and much more. Why?
Because Florida is an “at-will” state. Private employers are free to solicit, hire, promote, increase their pay, demote, lower their pay, suspend, terminate, rehire, reinstate benefits and treat employees... Read more »
I was told a very racist comment in front of few other coworkers, been sexualized multiple time at work, they pushed me to quit by the way they were treating, pretty sure made them happy since that’s exactly what he wanted, I’ve been treated extremely bad at that job and i need to know what to do.

Remember your employer needs to have at least 5-15 employees depending on physical location for them to qualify for jurisdiction of discrimination laws. You are welcome to contact me.

Actually, I wouldn't plan on suing the employer. Employers generally can fire their employees if they want to; they don't need a reason. But if someone else defamed you, you might sue that person if, by taking the deposition of the former employer, you can learn the identity accuser,... Read more »
