Residents of Florida and elsewhere depend on drug companies to make safe, reliable and effective medications to treat their illnesses or symptoms. Unfortunately, not all medications are created safely. When a drug is contaminated or manufactured improperly, consumers can suffer greatly.
Floridian residents like you work hard every day at your jobs. However, there are some unavoidable situations in which it becomes temporarily impossible for you to continue working. This is where the Family and Medical Leave Act, or FMLA, comes into play. But just what is this act?
The Americans with Disabilities Act is a federal law that protects Florida’s disabled workers by requiring employers to make “reasonable” accommodations for them. That word can be subjective to varying degrees, as is the term “disabled.”
Mergers and acquisitions are widely considered to be a healthy part of the corporate world, opening doors for competition and innovation. However, as you are aware, few mergers in Florida and elsewhere go perfectly smoothly. Most newly-merged entities experience a few bumps in the road during the first few weeks and months after the change. Indeed, it can take some businesses a couple of years to acclimate to what may feel to employees and customers as a completely new company.
Like most Florida businesses, you have contracts for your employees and clients, as well as terms of service for your customers to read and agree to before doing business. You may be aware that many companies include arbitration clauses in their terms of service, and you might be considering adding that to your own policies.
