The backbone of any dealership is the staff that works there. With any dedicated staff, you want to make sure you are doing what is best for them and your business. Each employee can present new and unique legal needs.
No matter how many employees you oversee, we at Kurkin Forehand Brandes LLP know how to make sure you are staying in line with Florida law. Our dedicated automobile dealership law attorneys have more than 190 years of combined experience in serving our clients, and we can assist you in a wide range of dealership personnel matters, including those involving:
- Minimum wage
- Meals and breaks
- Vacation leave
- Sick leave
- Holiday leave
- Fair Labor Standards Act (FLSA) requirements
- Occupational Safety and Health Administration (OSHA) rules
Choose An Attorney Who Can Protect You And Your Employees
At Kurkin Forehand Brandes LLP, we know that protecting the rights of your employees is just as important as protecting your rights as an automobile dealership franchisee. Having a lawyer who can make sure your actions are on the right side of the law can keep you out of serious trouble down the road.
While you might not have acted with any malicious intent, it is possible that an employee might perceive your actions as harassment or discrimination. We can offer counsel on how to avoid actions that can be misinterpreted and defend you in cases where your actions were misconstrued. It is always preferable to handle matters outside of court, but if negotiations fail, we are prepared to fight vigorously for your business.
