Fighting for Just Workplace Conditions
Workplace discrimination legislation prohibits employment-related actions that discriminate against protected classes of workers. Gunterfirm counsels businesses to comply with these statutes. Jason has also helped workers assert their rights under discrimination laws for 18 years.

Gunterfirm is committed to a workplace that is better for employees and for businesses in Naples, Fort Myers and the surrounding communities.
Advocating for Employees’ Rights
Employees should be judged by their skills and knowledge, not based upon the color of their skin, nationality, gender, age, or disability. Federal and Florida statutes protect employees’ from unjust employers. Under these laws, employers are prohibited from making adverse employment decisions related to termination, wages, benefits, shifts, promotion, training opportunities or recruitment, on the basis of a worker’s inclusion in a protected class. Employers are also required to make reasonable accommodations for employees and job applicants with disabilities. Likewise, employers must reasonably accommodate religious dress, customs and holidays.
When an employer makes a discriminatory job decision, Gunterfirm helps the employee achieve a just remedy, which may include back pay, compensatory damages, attorneys’ fees and costs, and possibly reinstatement to a former position. We have extensive experience dealing with the Equal Employment Opportunity Commission (EEOC) and the courts when facing these issues.
