  • Thank you for your help and support through this very trying time.

    “Jordan Richards and his team brought my case to a close quickly and with very satisfactory results. They took the stress from my shoulders and gave me back a peaceful and happy nights sleep. I'm forever grateful to them and I will be recommending their services for the foreseeable future. Thank you for your help and support through this very trying time.”

  • highly recommend

    “Tremendous respect and gratitude for USA employment lawyers for settling my case in a professional and efficient manner - highly recommend to anyone seeking counsel!”

    Kyle E.

  • Thank you so much for your help through a very difficult time.

    “Mr. Richards assisted us with an FLSA defense. To be confronted with this type of a lawsuit is really demoralizing especially that when you've done nothing wrong. Mr. Richards helped me to accept that there are people out there that's not worth the anger and frustration that I was going through. He did his absolute best to make our situation bearable and kept his fees as low as he possibly could for which we are very grateful. He and his staff were very kind and helpful to the end. I recommend him highly.”


  • Jordan Richards and his team went above and beyond typical lawyer/client interaction.

    “Jordan Richards and his team went above and beyond typical lawyer/client interaction. Mr. Richards and his team treated me like family and pursued my case with the upmost care and diligence. They did not leave anything unexplored and worked on my case tirelessly. They supported me, explained things in real time and guided me through every step of the lawsuit. Their thoroughness with my case resulted in the best possible outcome for me and my family. I cannot recommend Mr. Richards and his team enough.”

    Rachel D.

  • We are grateful for his expertise and patience.

    “My adult daughter encountered threats from her former employer around a non-compete clause that she had unwittingly signed. Jordan was able to explain her risks and more importantly, find holes in her non-compete clause that made it impossible to enforce. He saved my daughter thousands of dollars and a great deal of stress by quickly and professionally handling her case. One year later, she is still happily employed by her new company and there were no further lawsuit threats from her former employer after Jordan became involved in the case. We are grateful for his expertise and patience.”

Employment Law FAQs

  • How do I know if I have been harassed or discriminated against?
    Not all workplace harassment and discrimination is obvious; in some cases, it may be difficult to tell if your rights have been violated. If your boss or supervisor requests a sexual favor in return for a promotion or raise, this is harassment. If your coworkers create a hostile work environment by making inappropriate jokes or comments based on your appearance, sex, race, religion, or age, this also constitutes workplace harassment. If you are passed over for a job or a raise due to your sex or race, you have been discriminated against. Learn more about workplace sexual harassment and discrimination—as well as your rights—by browsing our website.
  • Can my employer pay me less than minimum wage?
    In most cases, all employers in the state of Florida must pay their employees the highest applicable minimum wage which, in this case, is the state’s minimum wage of $8.25 an hour. One exception to this involves tipped employees. Employers may pay tipped employees less than minimum wage if they choose to apply the “tip credit.” In such cases, it is assumed that the employee will make up the difference in tips. The tip credit in Florida is $3.02 an hour, meaning employers may pay tipped employees as little as $5.23 an hour.
  • Do I qualify for overtime wages?

    Overtime wages are available to employees who work more than 40 hours in one week. These workers are entitled to receive overtime wages of one and a half times their normal hourly rate of pay. However, there are certain exceptions to overtime, and not all employees are entitled to receive overtime wages.

    Visit our Overtime Wages page to learn more about overtime exemptions and whether or not you qualify for overtime wages.

  • Should I be compensated for working "off the clock," during lunch or at home?
    If you are working, you should be paid. You should be compensated for all work time, including time spent attending meetings, working while eating lunch at your desk, or working from home.
