Employment Litigation

Johnson & Ritchey, P.A. represents businesses when they are sued by employees for unpaid wages and overtime compensation. In Florida, a business must be represented by counsel and cannot represent itself with the exception of proceedings in small claims court. The attorneys at Johnson & Ritchey P.A. have found that most employers do not intend to violate regulations regarding payment of wages. Unfortunately if any unpaid wages or overtime compensation is awarded to the employee, the business will also be liable for the employees attorney's fees, court costs and potentially liquidated damages. Johnson & Ritchey, P.A. works to handle these matters as efficiently as possible and will advise the business on practices to avoid these cases in the future.
