Default Need help with Florida labor laws.

Ok, I tried searching through a couple government sites, but I can't make any sense of them.


Could anyone give me a link regarding Florida Labor Laws, specifically anything dealing with required breaks, bathroom usage, accommodations for people with medical issues, and (if possible) Air Conditioning usage?


Sounds like a weird grouping of subjects, but I'm trying to help my sister out

that poster should be posted in your workplace or her workplace in the breakroom and explains everything.

or ask them. If anything, message me and ask specifically, I live in Tampa and know most things.

Just because that becomes a dare

How many people (residents and tourists) decide to find out if their dashboard really is hot enough to fry an egg each August?

maybe 365000? dunno. I do know when they are going to Busch Gardens, most of them DON'T know where they are going. PAin in the butt on the road out here. And then if they go to HOS and you work there, they seem to be the most drunk too.

I live in Miami. The only thing I can tell you is that, for a normal, healthy person (no medical conditions or special circumstances), employers are NOT legally required to give a break regardless of the duration of the shift.

Here is a site that may answer the questions: http://www.laborlawtalk.com/archive/index.php/f-58.html

I would suggest she call the local employment office or the state main line and ask for the information.

I am still being heckled to this day after finding the CA law that said an employee provided rest room had to be kept at 68 degrees F or higher. Dammit, I got tired of walking into a freezer to do my business! :P

The difficult part is finding your business in a freezer.

Oi, ain't that the truth. Having to talk Mr. Winky down after having been outside in -30 weather is not my idea of fun.
