Employee Discipline in Florida


Mr. Miklas often counsels Florida employers on whether proposed employee discipline or discharge is likely to withstand challenge in any number of forums available to employees. We strive to have our clients contact us before they actually take any adverse employment action, but we also stand ready to defend Florida employers if an employee challenges such discipline.  We can handle such employee discipline challenges in Florida state or federal court, the Florida Division of Administrative Hearings (DOAH), in grievance arbitrations, and before agencies such as the Florida Commission on Human Relations (FCHR), the Equal Employment Opportunity Commission (EEOC), and the National Labor Relations Board (NLRB).


There are specific laws and regulations with which a Florida employer must comply when disciplining employees.  The most significant situations when legal counsel should be sought are prior to a termination, suspension (with or without pay), transfer, demotion, or lay-off.

At the Law Office of David Miklas, P.A., we concentrate on guiding employers through a wide range of disputes regarding labor and employment law. Employee discipline and wrongful termination can become complex issues depending on the situation and the emotional component that is usually attached.  In addition to the laws and regulations, employers must be mindful of any employment contract, collective bargaining agreement, or policies in place.
