Employment Law Attorney

At Trent Cotney, P.A. we believe employers have a voice and deserve equal and expert representation by an employer attorney in Tampa. Our legal experts will fight on your behalf to help you preserve and exercise employment and labor rights that govern the employer and employee relationship in the workplace.

Areas of Defense

Labor and employment law is complex due to the state and federal statutes that employers must abide by. Our law firm provides extensive counsel and defense to employers regarding issues in the workplace in the following areas:

Workplace Issues

Wage and Hour

  • Equal Pay
  • Unemployment
  • Unfair Labor Practices
  • Unpaid Wages (i.e., bonuses, commissions, and overtime)

Employment Contracts

  • Breach of Contract
  • Confidentiality Agreements
  • Employment Agreements
  • Non-compete Agreements
  • Non-Disclosure Agreements
  • Trade Secret Agreements

Preventing Workplace Claims

Employers with 15 or more employees are covered under the employment and labor laws that are enforced by the Equal Employment Opportunity Commission (EEOC). There are some exceptions to this rule based on whether you are a private employer, state, local, or federal government, or employment agency. Nevertheless, the key to avoiding claims is to understand your rights and responsibilities and to be proactive in implementing policies and procedures in the workplace that ensure a safe and amicable work environment for you and your employees.
