Are you applying for a new job and wondering what your future employer may check for? Hi, I’m Micah Longo, I’m a Florida employment lawyer practicing law here in Davie, Florida. Hiring a new employee is an important decision. Employers sometimes want to find about about the person’s work history, education, criminal record, financial history, or use of social media. Employers sometimes do civil litigation checks to examine the litigation attitudes of a prospective employee. Since, civil cases are public record, uncovering litigation history is fairly easy, especially today where most court dockets can be accessed online. The good news is that most employers understand that not all matters litigated have any bearing on a candidates ability to do the job. Now, anytime an employer uses an employee’s background information to make an employment decision, they must comply with state and federal anti-discrimination laws. This includes discrimination based on race, color, national origin, sex, religion, or disability. If you have questions about pre-employment background checks in Florida, or any other employment law matter, I invite you to pick up the phone and call me, I’d love to talk to you.

Wanna know how to calculate overtime pay with vacations and holidays? Hi, I’m Micah Longo, I’m a Florida employment lawyer practicing law here in Davie, Florida. Fair Labor Standards Act requires employers to pay non-exempt employees time and half the regular rate for all hours worked over 40 in a work week. The regular rate is a rate per hour that is determined by dividing the total pay in any workweek by the total number of hours actually worked by him in that workweek for which such compensation was paid. So for a salary worker, the regular rate would be calculated by dividing the weekly pay by 40 hours. Employers do not have to count paid holidays, paid time off, vacation, personal and sick leave hours taken by an employee toward the calculation of the overtime requirement because these hours are not actually worked and are therefore not considered as hours counted towards overtime under the FLSA. Also, the FLSA does not require overtime pay for work on weekends, unless overtime hours are worked on such days. In other words, the FLSA does not require extra pay for weekend or night work or double time pay. If you have questions about calculating overtime pay, or any other employment law matter, I invite you to pick up the phone and call me, I’d love to talk to you.

Do you wanna know if a tenant can sue a landlord for injuries in Florida? Hi, I’m Micah Longo, I’m a Florida personal injury attorney practicing law here in Davie, Florida. The first question is where did you get hurt? You see a landlord has a duty to maintain the common areas in a clean and safe condition. So, if you tripped and fell in the parking lot or slipped and fell in the lobby, you may have a claim against the landlord for your injuries, assuming the common areas where not properly maintained or the landlord failed to properly warn of a danger. It gets a little trickier if you were hurt inside your rental. In Florida, a landlord has a continuing duty to exercise reasonable care to repair dangerous defective conditions upon notice of their existence by the tenant. So, if you slipped and fell inside your rental because of a leaky air conditioner or some other dangerous condition and you landlord was made aware of the condition and failed to fix the problem, then you may sue your landlord for your injuries. Because of this, I always recommend tenants make all their complaints to landlords in writing, sent certified mail-return receipt. This way the landlord cannot dispute they had adequate notice of the problem. If you have questions about suing your landlord in Florida, or any other personal injury matter, I invite you to pick up the phone and call me, I’d love to talk to you.

Were you hurt in a hit and run accident in Florida and wanna know if you have a case? Hi, I’m Micah Longo, I’m a Florida personal injury attorney practicing law here in Davie, Florida. Assuming, the police aren’t able to track down the hit and run driver, you still have a case if you have uninsured motorist coverage on your policy. Uninsured motorist coverage is not mandatory in Florida and it is designed to protected injured drivers who are hit by people who don’t have enough insurance or not have insurance at all. In the case of a hit and run driver, it would fall under the category that the driver didn’t have insurance at all. Not sure if you have uninsured motorist coverage? - just take a look at your policy documents. If you have bodily injury insurance (BI), then your insurance company must offer you uninsured motorist coverage in an same amount. If you elect not to purchase uninsured motorist coverage you must make a written rejection of the coverage. If you have any questions about your insurance policy, or any other personal injury matter, I invite you to pick up the phone and call me, I’d love to talk to you.

Do you wanna know who pays if you’re in a car accident in Florida in a company vehicle? Hi, I’m Micah Longo, I’m a Florida personal injury attorney practicing law here in Davie, Florida. Did you know, if you were injured in a car accident, while in the scope of your employment, you likely have a workers compensation claim? Now, the term, “scope of employment “includes all acts reasonably necessary or related to the performance of work. In other words, not personal business. The interesting thing about car accidents while on the job is that you’re generally entitled to benefits, even if you were at-fault, in the form of lost wages and medical expenses. Now, if another driver was at-fault in the accident, you also have a claim against that driver’s insurance. Under this scenario the at-fault driver’s insurance company pays for any lost wages and medical expenses not covered by workers compensation, as well as non-economic damages like pain and suffering, mental anguish, and loss of enjoyment of life. It’s not uncommon to have two (2) claims at once - workers compensation claim and a third party claim against the at-fault driver’s insurance. If you have questions about this or any other personal injury matter, I invite you to pick up the phone and call me, I’d love to talk to you.
