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.
