  • Truth in hiring Florida

    Anyone have any comments on "truth in hiring" lawsuits. If I work in Florida and got fired and Corporate is in NY, and if you decided to sue, can you sue in NY or is it Florida only?

    Reason, I heard that if working in Florida and trying to sue a NY Corporation, never win because Florida employee rights are weak in a case of this nature?

    Tks and apprecaite your comments.

    Florida labor laws are weak all over. But what kind of lawsuit are you trying to file?
    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.

      Did the employer make promises to you that they didn't keep? Were they in writing? As the other responder asked, what type of lawsuit are you wanting to file?

      Too often we underestimate the power of a touch, a smile, a kind word, a listening ear, an honest compliment, or the smallest act of caring, all of which have the potential to turn a life around. Leo Buscaglia

        If you worked in Florida, then you sue in Florida b/c that where the transactions and event occured for a state cause of action. You could also invoke diversity jurisdiction if the amount in controversy is satisfied since the employer is a NY resident, or if you invoke a federal statute. There may be other issues such as an arbitration agreement, venue provision or governing law agreement.
