In Florida, some teachers have found that their bonuses are coming up short. Tens of thousands — if not hundreds of thousands — of teachers may be affected. Morgan & Morgan is representing teachers in a suit against the Florida Department of Education seeking compensation for the underpayment of these bonuses. This lawsuit will apply to thousands of teachers throughout the state in an effort to retrieve the pay they rightfully earned.
“As a teacher already being underpaid, I was alarmed and bewildered to see that hundreds of dollars had been taken out of my bonuses,” said Christopher Alianiello, the class representative in the lawsuit and a former elementary school teacher in Orange County. “This not only affects me, but many of my friends and thousands of hardworking teachers across the state, and I hope to help remedy the situation for all of them.”
