    Exit Interviews

    They are not mandatory to be offered to an employee nor is it mandatory that an employee participate in one once they leave the company.

      Exit Interviews (Florida)

      Our business is in the construction industry where turnover is very high. We have to give our employees the tools they need to do the job, often amounting to $1000's of dollars in parts and tools that are on their workvans. When an employee quits, often these tools show up missing so we require employees to perform an 'exit interview'. This is more of an opportunity to 'settle up' than of finding out why they have left. We have the employee sign when they start that they understand an exit interview will be required and that it must be scheduled in advance. It can hold up their final check from being paid until the interview has been scheduled and complete. Is this legal in Florida?

        Since Florida has no statute requiring that an employee be given their final check at any particular time, yes, it is legal in Florida. It would be illegal in most states where the final check has to be released within x number days of the last day of work.
        The above answer, whatever it is, assumes that no legally binding and enforceable contract or CBA says otherwise. If it does, then the terms of the contract or CBA apply.
