    There are many ways in Florida to beat your non-compete. You should have a lawyer take a look at it and learn some more information about your employer.

    Sounds like your employer is stealing money from you. Also, with these commissions are you making at least minimum wage? These issues can be resolved by going to the U.S. Department of Labor or an attorney that handles wage and hour matters such as my office. However, if you are still employed by this employer, maybe you don't want to make a stink. For more information on your employee legal rights check out our blog www.takethisjobnshoveitblog.com.

    The laws on paying overtime are Federal and are the same in every state. Your employer is cheating you in violation of Federal Law. Go to the U.S. Department of Labor of an employment lawyer that handles wage and hour violations. Feel free to call my office to discuss further. If you want more information on your employee legal rights under the FLSA check our our employee rights blog www.takethisjobnshoveitlblog.com or www.behrenlaw.com.

    The statute of limitations in Florida for most causes of action is four years. The statute of limitations for a written contract in five years. If the agreement is in writing and he made payments you might be able to get out of the statute of limitations, otherwise, you probably can no longer sue for this. If you wish to discuss further feel free to speak with us www.behrenlaw.com.

    Will the new potential employer confirm what was said to them? There are also services that will call your former employer and pretend to be an employer and will document what is said. If you can do that, you may have a good claim for slander, defamation or tortious interference. For more information about the companies that check references for you and how you can hold your former employer liable for this kinds of stuff, check out my blog post on this issue on takethisjobnshoveitblog.com.

    There could be a whistleblower claim. I would put in writing a complaint to your supervisor or HR to complaint about demands to park vehicles in handicapped spots. See what happens. If you get fired in response, you may very well have a whistleblower claim. For more information on employee rights check out my employee rights blog www.takethisjobnshoveitblog.com.
