During hurricane Irma, many Floridians were forced to evacuate. However, in response, many employers are disciplining their employees or even firing them for leaving.
We have a particular interest in these types of cases and would like to help those affected. Our employment lawyers have developed theories of recovery and might assist you in recovering your damages. We might assist wherever in Florida you reside. Not only can such claims possibly be brought as Whistleblower actions, but they also might fall under the EECO and FCHR’s jurisdiction for certain types of unfair treatment.
Compensation could include an order declaring that Defendant violated Plaintiff’s rights; a request for compensatory damages for emotional pain, suffering, mental anguish, loss of enjoyment of life, dignitary injury, and other non-pecuniary losses: an order for back pay, including the economic value of lost employment benefits and interest on back pay; a request for front pay, including interest on
front pay, or for reinstatement instead of front pay; an order for reasonable attorney’s fees (including expert fees) and costs; punitive damages; an order enjoining Defendant from engaging in any such unlawful employment practice, and for any other affirmative action or equitable relief as the Court deems appropriate; and for other and further relief as the Court deems just and proper.
