There are over seven (7) million employees (non-agricultural) in Florida. Additionally, there are several layers of laws that regulate the employer/employee relationship; State, Federal as well as County and Municipal Ordinances.
The Fair Labor Standards Act (FLSA) and the Florida Minimum Wage Act (FMWA) are laws that focus on compensation for hourly as well as salaried employees. Unemployment, Overtime, Drug-Free Workplace, Hiring and Firing, Equal Employment Opportunity Commission (EEOC - Sexual Harassment Discrimination, etc.) are State, Federal and local laws that regulate working conditions as well as the employer/employee and workplace relationship.

Best Attorney for the Job
The best attorney for the job is usually the one who understands all aspects of the case. That includes understanding what the party sitting across the table is thinking. The attorneys at Kuvin Law have more than 25 years of restaurant and hospitality business experience. Their experience and the large base of restaurant knowledge is something you are not likely to find in attorneys at other law firms.
We believe that working with our clients, not just for them, is important for proper representation. You can skip the extra time it takes explaining how a restaurant works, “restaurant philosophy,” or the ins-and-outs of your daily business. This saves time and resources and gives your team an advantage.
We develop legal strategies that make business sense. In most cases, the key to efficiently defending an employment case is to immediately determine if a violation existed and remedy the situation. Each case is evaluated realistically using a cost-effective approach while working with our clients to ensure their interests are being protected. We will resolve a case quickly or aggressively defend it by seeking dismissal of any claim that lacks merit depending on how our client wants to proceed. It is important it is to be in compliance with employment regulations and to assess these claims early in litigation in order to minimize damages and litigation fees and costs.

Many law firms practice in vertical columns regarding the law and specialize in areas such as contracts, personal injury or commercial transactions. At Kuvin Law we practice horizontally across a wide variety of specialized areas of law such as Hospitality and Restaurant issues. From negotiating restaurant/club leases to defending premises/personal injury cases or labor issues. Our more than 25 years of experience in the Hospitality and Restaurant industry prior to becoming attorneys gives our clients a distinct advantage.
We believe that working with our clients, not just for them, saves us time and our client’s money. We understand restaurant philosophy including the in-and-outs of your daily business decisions. Many attorneys do not have the practical restaurant experience that our attorneys possess.
