Click here to get the video explanation of "Women Are More Susceptiable to Age Discrimination?" Attorney Micah Longo of the Davie law firm The Longo Firm says, “the truth is that older workers applying for jobs receive fewer callbacks than younger applicants, making it harder to get hired. The LA Times recently did a study that found “women are more susceptible to age discrimination than men. Why might older women suffer relatively more from age discrimination? Research indicates that physical attractiveness boosts hiring. Studies also show there is an “attractiveness penalty for age, which is harsher for men than for women. Also, the law that protects women from sexual harassment/discrimination (Title VII and FCRA) is a different law than the one that protects everyone from Age discrimination (ADEA), thus it’s harder for women to win…Read More

Click here to get the video explanation of "How to Deal With Unfair Treatment at Work?" Attorney Micah Longo of the Davie, Florida law firm The Longo Firm says, “in evaluated an unfair treatment claim, courts use the McDonnell Douglas framework (famous case), under which plaintiff has the initial burden of establishing a case by showing he/she was a qualified member of a protected class and was subjected to an adverse employment action in contrast with similarly situated employees outside the protected class. Protected classes under federal law are (1) Race, (2) National Origin, (3) Religion, (4) Age, (5) Sex, and (6) Disability. Plaintiff and comparators outside the protected class who are treated more favorably must be similarly situated in ALL relevant aspects. This prevents courts from second-guessing employers’ reasonable decisions and confusing apples with…Read More

Click here to get the video explanation of "Calculating Overtime Pay With Vacations and Holidays" Wanna know how to calculate overtime pay with vacations and holidays? Hi, I’m Micah Longo, I’m a Florida employment lawyer practicing law here in Davie, Florida. Fair Labor Standards Act requires employers to pay non-exempt employees time and half the regular rate for all hours worked over 40 in a work week. The regular rate is a rate per hour that is determined by dividing the total pay in any workweek by the total number of hours actually worked by him in that workweek for which such compensation was paid. So for a salary worker, the regular rate would be calculated by dividing the weekly pay by 40 hours. Employers do not have to count paid holidays, paid time off,…Read More

Click here to get the video explanation of "My Lawyer Filed A Lawsuit: Now What?" Attorney Micah Longo of the Davie law firm The Longo Firm says, “the first stage of a civil litigation case is the pleading stage. Here the Plaintiff files a complaint which outlines the facts to support a particular cause of action. The Defendant then has an opportunity to respond by admitting or denying the allegations in the Complaint. The Defendant also has an opportunity to assert “affirmative defenses.” The next stage of a civil litigation case is discovery. Discovery usually takes the form of Interrogatories, Requests for Production of Documents, Requests for Admissions, and the taking of Depositions. Anything that is “reasonably calculated to lead to the discovery of admissible evidence” is fair game in discovery. Usually, the next stage…Read More

Click here to get the video explanation of "What is Considered Sexual Harassment in Florida?" Attorney Micah Longo of The Longo Firm in Davie, FL says, “federal and state civil rights laws prohibit employers from discriminating against workers because of their sex. In other words, these laws prohibit a hostile work environment caused by sexual harassment. Usually, a worker claims a co-worker or supervisor harassed her because of sex and that harassment created a hostile work environment. To have a sexual harassment case in Florida the offensive acts or statements must be so severe or pervasive that it materially alters the terms and conditions of the employment. Factors that are considered are how often the conduct occurred? it’s severity? whether it was physically or psychologically threatening or humiliating? and whether it interfered with the worker’s…Read More
