Skillfully Defending Florida Employers

From Stan’s interview for the Masters of the Courtroom series on

A serious employment law dispute has the potential to undermine both a company’s financial stability and its reputation. At Padgett Law, P.A., we focus on protecting our clients’ bottom lines and the goodwill they’ve worked so hard to build.

With more than 35 years of experience serving businesses in the Tampa Bay area and throughout Florida, we have the knowledge required to safeguard your interests. We defend employers in many different industries in a wide array of employment litigation cases, including claims of:

  • Sexual harassment
  • Discrimination based on race, age, gender, disability or other protected classes
  • Retaliation or wrongful termination
  • Hostile work environment
  • Family and Medical Leave Act (FMLA) violations
  • Unpaid wages, overtime or unemployment benefits

Litigation Involving Covenants Not To Compete

In addition to defending employers against retaliation claims, harassment claims and related issues, Padgett Law, P.A., has particular experience resolving disputes over non-compete and non-solicitation agreements. In these cases, we meticulously analyze the geographic scope, time limitations and specific language used in the agreement to help determine enforceability. We also advise employers about the various legal ramifications associated with violations of these agreements.

Did you know? As an employer, if you knowingly hire someone subject to a non-compete agreement with another company and allow him or her to violate that agreement, you may be sued for tortious interference and required to pay punitive damages. The employee, on the other hand, may only be sued for breach of contract. You have greater risk than the employee you hire.
