Employment Law For Employers


Protecting Your Company's Legal Standing

Employers in today's fast-paced production environments are often called upon to defend themselves against accusations of hostile work environments, wrongful termination and retaliation by an employee

It is difficult to know which federal and state employment regulations impact your business and what you need to do to avoid legal problems for noncompliance.

You could benefit from the legal knowledge and personal service of an experienced employment law attorney who knows Florida employment law and our state's competitive business climate; someone with decades of service and a hard-earned reputation for results with cases in state and federal courts.

I want to be that lawyer for you. I am Carla D. Franklin, a Gainesville employment law attorney dedicated to protecting your rights as a Florida employer.

My legal services include identification of your workplace legal problem and formulation of a strategy to remedy it via proactive policies and negotiation, mediation, arbitration or litigation is necessary. I strive to protect employer rights wherever they are being challenged.
