With its year-round gorgeous weather, it’s little wonder that tourism is one of the top sectors of employment in Naples, along with healthcare and construction. While lucrative for our city, these industries are known for rampant labor violations, and it is more important than ever before for Naples workers to know their rights.
Morgan and Morgan’s labor and employment division handles all types of employment and wage-related cases on behalf of employees across the country. Our team of lawyers primarily focuses its attention on discrimination, harassment, overtime, minimum wage and wrongful discharge cases.

Why Should I Hire an Attorney?
Hiring an attorney can have a direct effect on whether your rights as an employee are protected. Often, the company, especially a large corporation, will have more resources and possibly a legal team in-house or retained to limit their exposure. In these cases, you may need an employment lawyer who can protect your rights and improve your chances of filing a successful claim.
It can be difficult to decide whether an employer’s actions are illegal, and speaking to our attorneys can help you make this important distinction. We can also address any concerns you may have about negative consequences at work and investigate potential wage and hour violations which may be creating hardships for you and your family.
How Much Does a Lawyer Cost?
We generally handle these cases on a “contingency plus” representation, meaning that the employer/defendant is obligated to pay our attorneys’ fees and costs (or a percentage of the clients’ recovery if our total fees are not awarded by the court).
Can I Be Retaliated Against for Filing a Complaint?
Retaliation against an employee who files an employment claim is strictly forbidden by law under the Fair Labor Standards Act (FLSA). Employers may not demote, reduce an employee’s hours, assign an employee an undesirable shift, reduce job duties, or give intentionally false poor performance reviews when a claim is filed. Employees may be entitled to additional compensation if their employer engages in retaliation.
