Advocating for Employee Rights Throughout Miami-Dade County
Under Florida law, the employment relationship is typically guided by the at-will employment doctrine which means that an employee can be terminated for a good reason, bad no reason, or no reason at all, as long as the actual reason is not an unlawful one. However, the at-will relationship can be altered by an employment agreement or contract between the employer and the employee. These types of agreements typically discuss an employment term, compensation, benefits, each party’s ability to cancel the contract, and each party’s expectations and obligations.
In addition to employment contracts, there are other types of agreements that employers often require employees to sign. For example:
- Independent contractor
- Jury waiver
- Waivers and consents
The lawyers at BT Law Group have experience drafting all of these agreements and more, as well as advising clients on their obligations and limitations under such agreements.
