Employers are required to follow numerous state and federal regulations prohibiting discriminatory practices and retaliation. Unfortunately, even when employers follow the letter and spirit of these laws, it is not uncommon for current or former employees to bring claims of unlawful discrimination. If an employee claims that an employer violated federal laws, he or she will make a claim to the Equal Employment Opportunity Commission (EEOC). Alleged violations of state law are brought to the Florida Commission on Human Relations (FCHR). If either of these organizations is investigating your company based on an employee’s claims, it is critical to get a knowledgeable lawyer on your side immediately.
