Welcome to the Employer Lawyers blog! In this blog, we will examine current legal issues, news, and developments in Labor and Employment Law at federal, state, and local levels. We will bring you not only the news but also our thoughts on how these new developments may impact your business.
We are kicking off our blog with a discussion regarding the perennial need for employers to have current, comprehensive employee handbooks. The fall season is a great time to review handbooks and make changes to be effective at the start of next year.
Speaking of next year, the Florida Department of Economic Opportunity will announce Florida’s minimum wage for 2014 within the next two weeks. We are waiting for the announcement and will alert readers to the new minimum wage.
