Hiring and Firing in Florida

June 22

Navigate the legal risks related to hiring employees in Florida.

Employers frequently face lawsuits relating to the hiring and firing of employees. Employers unknowingly violate state and federal laws when asking questions during interviews, completing background checks and when hiring an employee, they are not permitted to hire. Additionally, employers are at risk of being sued every time they terminate an employee even if the employer has not violated any laws. This topic helps employers navigate the legal risks related to hiring employees and avoid violating state and federal laws. This material also gives employers guidance to avoid being sued after terminating employees. The content also identifies additional considerations that employers must consider when hiring and firing employees and how best to minimize its risks.
