The Family Medical Leave Act (FMLA) is a complex federal law that governs eligible employees’ right to take intermittent or continuous medical leave for qualifying medical or family reasons. Oftentimes, employees find themselves with questions about their rights and their employers’ rights with respect to their medical leave. Our Ohio FMLA lawyer is here to provide guidance to employees asserting their right to FMLA protected leave and representation if their employers interfere with, or otherwise retaliate against them for exercising, their rights.

Employment Issues

There are many potential employees’ rights issues beginning when a potential employee applies for employment, continuing once they are employed, and concluding at the end of their employment relationship. We are here to answer any questions regarding: (1) the background check your employer uses to make hiring decisions; (2) the hostile work environment you work in; (3) the severance agreement you receive at your separation; or (4) your right to unemployment compensation.

Sexual Harassment

Sexual harassment at work is completely unacceptable. Our Ohio Sexual Harassment Lawyer appreciates the struggle that employees experience when they are being sexually harassed by a coworker or supervisor.

One of the most important things that you can do to protect yourself if you find yourself in this situation is to contact an attorney who is there for you and will swiftly take the necessary steps to end the unwelcomed harassment.

Retaliation

Within employment law, there are multiple laws which protect employees from retaliation by their employers. For instance, employees who participate in various proceedings and employees who oppose unlawful employment practices, such as reporting sexual harassment, are protected from retaliation. In addition, employees who exercise their right to medical leave or pursue workers’ compensation benefits are likewise protected from retaliation.  Our Ohio Employment Retaliation Lawyer is here to inform you of your rights related to retaliation at work and protect you from unlawful retaliation by your employer.
