Good morning. I've been up since 3:00 finding 8 bed bugs. I cannot sleep because if bites and itching. I spoke with the office manager months ago she said they look like old bites. I have never experienced bed bugs in all of my 66 yesrs. What do I need to do next. Sheila Jones
This is not an employment issue; it is a (very serious) landlord & tenant issue that should be reported to your local county health department. The county health department will probably send someone out to talk to you and investigate this situation. You do not need a lawyer to do anything; yet.
You need to make a written demand per Fla. Stat. 83.56(1) for treatment of the bed bugs if pest control is the landlords responsibility under the lease or Fla. Stat.83.51(2).
