A Guide to Workplace & Employment Issues
By: Florida Chamber Foundation
Ensuring a strong and responsive business climate is crucial to Florida’s future. To attract and retain increasingly mobile entrepreneurs, contractors, and on-demand employees and employers, it is important that we provide a supportive environment for employers and continue to invest in education, workforce, infrastructure, and other systems. A competitive business environment will also limit new laws and regulations that may inhibit emerging technology and business models.
The Florida 2030 research discusses the challenges and opportunities ahead as well as identifying goals for 2030. Goals for building a competitive business climate include:
- Ensure Florida does not impose new burdensome and uncompetitive workplace mandates.
- Protect Florida’s right-to-work status and monitor changes in other states to assess the impact to Florida’s business climate.
- Ensure the 1099 workforce and telecommuter workforce have clear guidelines for workplace mandates and liabilities.
