Fla.-based business faces discrimination, harassment allegations

Truly Nolen is a pest extermination business founded in Florida with locations all over the country. A former employee of the office in Broward County has filed a lawsuit against the company alleging that she received discriminatory treatment from superiors on the basis of her race, gender and disability status. She also alleges sexual harassment by male co-workers and implies the company fired her in retaliation for complaining about the treatment she allegedly received. 

Is blacklisting unlawful in Florida?

Nearly any business owner deals with some employees they would never want to work with again, and they might not wish them on their worst competitors, either. However, Florida business owners should understand that while it is permissible to fire an employee for an acceptable reason, such as being combative with co-workers or consistently being late, there are rules surrounding blacklisting that could land a company in legal hot water if they were found to engage in this practice.

Litigation and disputes involving business partners

For some businesses, partnerships play a central role in the success of the establishment. There are many reasons why people may decide to move forward with a partnership, and this can offer a number of advantages. However, it can also lead to complications, especially when a dispute arises. In some instances, these disagreements can even result in litigation, which can be incredibly costly and time-consuming. If you have found yourself in the middle of a lawsuit which involves a business partner, it is vital to pinpoint the correct course of action.
