Employment & Labor
Speak with an Experienced Attorney specializing in Employment and Labor Law
The dedicated Labor and Employment attorneys at Bogin, Munns & Munns have been serving the needs of the Greater Orlando area since 1979. We understand that the times you need a labor attorney are often stressful and charged with emotions. In those times, you will need an experienced attorney familiar with the complexities related to employment law to help you navigate this sometimes complex process.
We represent Employers and Employees in disputes and litigation before administrative agencies, federal and state courts. We also represent our clients in arbitrations and mediations. A few of the matters we handle include the following:
- Wrongful Termination
- Breach of Contract
- Violation of Wage and Hour Laws, including purported class actions
- Violations of Non-Competition and Non-Disclosure Agreements
- Discrimination (e.g. Age, Sex, Race Religion, Equal Pay, Disability and More)
- Failure to Accommodate Disabilities
To speak with an attorney about your situation, please fill out our online Employment Law Questionnaire (for both employees and employers).

Frequently Asked Questions
It is up to the employee to make sure the employer knows of the disability and to let the employer know that an accommodation is required. It is not the employer’s responsibility to recognize that the employee has a need first. Once a request is made, the employee and the employer need to work together to find if accommodations are actually necessary, and if so, what they will be. Both parties have a responsibility to be cooperative. An employer cannot propose only one unhelpful option and then refuse to offer further options, and employees cannot refuse to explain which duties are being impeded by their disability or refuse to give medical evidence of their disability. If the employee refuses to give relevant medical evidence or explain why the accommodation is required, the employer cannot be held accountable for not making the accommodation.
Even if a person is filling out a job application, an employer may be required to make accommodations to assist the applicant in filling it out. However, like an employee, the applicant is responsible for letting the employer know that an accommodation is required. Then it is up to the employer to work with the applicant to complete the application process.
No, they do not. Employers may even be instructed by their legal teams not to give any reason when delivering the bad news.
Part of the Civil Rights Act of 1964, Title VII protects individuals from discrimination in aspects of employment, including (but not limited to) pay, classification, termination, hiring, employment training, referral, promotion, and benefits based on (among other things) the individuals color, nation of origin, race, gender, or status as a veteran.
