 Florida Legislative Session Recap:
What HR Professionals Need to Know


Now that the legislative session has closed, we are providing  a recap of new legislation and what may come up next year.  Hosted by two labor and employment attorneys who are also HR Tampa Board members, this session will guide you on upcoming employment law.

Dee Anna Hays
Ogletree Deakins 

Christopher Cavaliere 
Shumaker Loop

 Dee Anna Hays is Board Certified in labor and employment law by the Florida Bar. She has been representing employers in all aspects of labor and employment law compliance and litigation for over 11 years.  As a result, Dee Anna understands the legal issues as well as the practical issues confronting management. She enjoys counseling clients to solve tough issues and ardently defends them when necessary.

A growing portion of Dee Anna’s practice focuses on occupational safety and health issues.  She litigates OSHA cases and represents employers during government inspections and investigations.  Dee Anna also frequently guides employers in handling workplace fatalities and other severe accidents.

Dee Anna represents employers in a wide range of industries, including healthcare, retail, construction, technology, electrical utilities, and not-for-profit.  She advocates in federal and state courts and before numerous government agencies — including the DOL, EEOC, OSHA, NLRB, OFCCP, HHS, and FCHR.  On a regular basis, Dee Anna also handles handbook and compliance reviews on a national scale for large employers to proactively minimize liability (including privileged wage and hour and safety audits).

A practical advisor and passionate advocate for his clients, Chris helps businesses prevent and resolve legal disputes, particularly those with their own employees. Focusing on labor and employment law, he assists both large and small employers with HR and employment issues relating to hiring and firing, background checks, employee handbooks, compensation, overtime, discrimination, harassment, retaliation, breach of contract, unpaid wages, non-competition agreements, non-solicitation agreements, confidentiality agreements, and more.  

With an appreciation for the specific business needs of his clients, Chris helps ensure compliance with federal and state employment laws such as:  Title VII, Fair Labor Standards Act (FLSA), Americans with Disabilities Act (ADA), National Labor Relations Act (NLRA), Age Discrimination in Employment Act (ADEA), Family and Medical Leave Act (FMLA), Fair Credit Reporting Act (FCRA), Occupational Safety and Health Administration (OSHA)

He drafts employment contracts, independent contractor agreements, restrictive covenant agreements, separation and severance agreements, and employee handbooks.

Chris also regularly represents clients before state and federal administrative agencies and courts.  Having a strong background as a litigator and trial attorney, Chris prepares each case with an eye toward trial and fearlessly advocates for his clients.
