There are always deadlines for bringing employment-related claims when the employee is the person initiating the claim because there are statutes of limitations. Some statutes of limitations are very short, for example, an employee will need to file a charge of discrimination for certain types of discrimination claims within a certain number of days, otherwise, the claim is time barred. Other claims, such as contractual claims, are also limited by time. Florida has a statute of limitations for written contracts, which is five years. For any other type of contract, it’s four years, so the employee has to abide by those statutes of limitations. There’s exceptions to this too, when there are counter claims, and that can lengthen the period of time that an employee can bring a claim.
