As we all know, state and local governments enforce a multitude of employment regulations that have a huge impact on how you hire your employees, what you do with them while you have them, and what you do when they leave, whether they leave voluntarily or involuntarily. When you have a question about these employment matters and need an answer, simply call this number – 407-722-7670 -- or email

They will talk with you about your specific situation, answer your question, and provide you with advice and recommendations to resolve the issue. Here are some examples of the kinds of questions you might ask . . .

  • - I am about to dismiss an employee. Do I have a proper reason, is it properly documented, and will it stand up if it is challenged by a government investigator?
  • - Do I have to pay overtime to my delivery drivers?

You can imagine hundreds more employee questions which can arise in the day-to-day business of managing your workforce and almost every one of them can be different -- questions about COBRA, FMLA, EEOC, ADA and so many others. Sometimes, a simple solution can turn into a complicated catastrophe if it's not handled properly and what's logical isn't always what's legal.
