Cases of Discrimination
Whether in the workplace or in your daily life, discrimination on the basis of protected classes like race, sex, country of origin, disability status, age, or religion is against the law.
Hiring practices that wrongfully favor one race, for example, may warrant litigation. Similarly, being turned away from a place of business due to your religion or country of origin is a violation of your civil rights.
Sexual harassment, while also a form of assault, is often a civil rights issue, as it represents behavior based on your sex or gender. Florida Statutes §760.10 sets forth the laws against workplace discrimination and classifies sexual harassment in the workplace as a form of prohibited discrimination.
Not only is the individual who harasses you at fault, but your place of employment may also hold some liability if they have not created a safe environment or taken pains to mandate sexual harassment training and information.
At Bogin, Munns & Munns, our Orlando civil rights attorneys can help you get justice for the harm that was done to you by violating your rights. We work through every stage of the process, including:

Law Enforcement Issues
Unfortunately, our civil rights are often violated by members of law enforcement or the judicial system itself. With the death of George Floyd in 2020, as well as the history of police violence and related issues, public outcry for law enforcement reform has swept the nation.
The Orlando civil rights attorneys at Bogin, Munns & Munns are dedicated to protecting your rights regarding violations like:
- Police brutality
- Wrongful imprisonment
- Cruel and unusual punishment
- False arrest
U.S. Code Chapter 42 §1983 provides a legal pathway for justice in situations in which the government (or a representative of the government) violates your rights. However, Florida sets a limit on cases against the government. When you file a claim against the state, city, county, or municipality, you must do so within four years of the initial violation of your rights. Otherwise, you may lose the legal right to seek compensation and justice.
Our Orlando civil rights lawyers can help you handle the necessary paperwork, gather the appropriate evidence, and file your claim within the time limits. Speak to us today so that we can start the process and ensure you retain your right to compensation.
