Currently, the State of Florida has passed measures requiring and enforcing workers compensation as per Florida Statute 440.205 of Title XXXI. This law protects an employee’s right to worker’s comp without threats, intimidation, harassment or being fired by their employer. If an employee has failed to maintain their job while injured or has been terminated for filing a claim, they may have a case against their employer.
Eiss Massillon represents employees who have a claim of any of these violations against their employer. We also represent businesses against whom a claim has been made asserting a violation of FS §440.205.
