Be Prepared

Gulf Coast Business Review
William B. deMeza Jr.

Tampa office Labor & Employment Team partner Bill deMeza was quoted extensively in "Be Prepared," an article in the Gulf Coast Business Review. The piece provides a labor law overview and stresses the importance of planning and policy application to help companies avoid legal issues with their workforce. Navigating new, evolving or sometimes misunderstood law like the Family Medical Leave Act or Fair Labor Standards Act can be tricky, and legal action in this area is growing at an accelerated rate in Florida, deMeza acknowledges. With careful planning and policies and consistent record-keeping, however, employers will avoid common legal traps.
