    You should seek FMLA if your employer offers FMLA and if you have worked long enough for the company. If they then fire you or refuse your leave you may have additional legal claims. FOr a summary of your rights under the FMLA, check out our employee rights blog at www.takethisjobnshoveitblog.com or www.behrenlaw.com.

    Not required to give you breaks. They are required to pay overtime if you work over 40 hours is a week. If they are paying half cash they are probably not paying federal and state payroll taxes which is also illegal. You might want to report them to the U.S. Department of Labor or go to a wage and hour lawyer. Feel free to contact my office if you wish.

    The fact that they are making a "supervisor" now perform non supervisor jobs may remove any exemption from overtime that they may have had for you under the Fair Labor Standards Act (FLSA). You may now be owed overtime. For more information, feel free to check out our employee rights blog at www.takethisjobnshoveitblog.com.

    I would claim that your refusal to sign a non compete is not the type of misconduct that would justify nonpayment of unemployment. For some bloggings on this topic, check out my employee rights blog www.takethisjobnshoveitblog.com or my website www.behrenlaw.com.

That would depend upon whether there is a written contract between the parties that provides for recovery of attorneys fees. There are also some rules in Florida that can be followed to to recover attorneys fees such as serving a proposal for settlement. In short, you really would need to consult with an attorney with more details. Feel free to contact my...
