We provide clear advice and develop a legal strategy for our clients so they know what to expect and can make well-informed decisions. Matters we regularly handle for our clients include:

  • Employment Contracts:

    properly drafted employment contracts protect both the worker and the business. Gunterfirm drafts and negotiates and all employment related contracts, including non-compete, nondisclosure, executive and independent contractor agreements.

  • Employment Discrimination:

    Businesses are barred from discriminating against employees based upon their inclusion in a protected class, including age, gender race, religion and nationality. Our firm upholds these crucial protections.

  • Fair Labor Standards Act:

    The Fair Labor Standards Act establishes minimum wage and overtime pay standards.

    Our lawyers take steps to protect the hard-earned wages earned by workers. Gunterfirm also assists employers with professional wage and hour compliance reviews and defends businesses in wage and hour litigation

  • FMLA:

    The Family Medical Leave Act creates an opportunity for balance between work and family health. Gunterfirm. guides clients through complex compliance issues related to this federal statute.

  • Discrimination:

    We advocate for a discrimination-free workplace, because workers should never be judged solely by their gender, race, nationality, religion, age, disability or other irrelevant characteristic.

  • Labor Law:

    Our team works with businesses to remain legally compliant with all governing labor laws

  • Non-Compete Law:

    Well-written non-compete contracts protect businesses from losing a competitive advantage, but should never be so restrictive to infringe upon the rights of workers to earn their living.

  • Sexual Harassment:

    Gunterfirm protects employees when they have been sexually harassed and guide businesses to develop policies designed to protect its workers from the offensive conduct.

  • Whistleblower:

    Whistleblower statutes are designed to protect workers who speak out against workplace injustice or illegal activity. We consider all legal strategies to protect these employees.

  • Wrongful Termination:

    Although Florida is an at-will state, employers are prohibited from firing workers when, for instance, the termination is based on discrimination, in retaliation against a whistleblower or in breach of an employment contract.
