We handle unemployment compensation issues as well as fair wage claims. Florida is an “at will” employment state, which means that in most cases, employees may be fired “at will” by an employer. This is not true in cases where the employee has contractual or statutory rights, or where an employee is the victim of discrimination based on gender, age, race or religion.
Civil employment issues are also involved in cases involving human trafficking, which is prohibited under both state and federal law. Report trafficking crimes or get help by calling the toll-free hotline1-888-428-7581 (voice and TTY.)
Three Rivers also assists in removing barriers to employment by helping clients with expungement or sealing of a criminal record.
