Common Workplace Issues

Upon an employee’s separation from employment, our Columbus employment attorney will work fight for your rights to unemployment compensation and/or demand for severance pay. We can work with you to secure unemployment benefits or fight for additional severance.
Even if it’s determined that you are not initially eligible for unemployment compensation benefits, you can still appeal and have a hearing. Keep in mind, this hearing is the most important stage of the unemployment process and having an attorney can make all the difference in your case.
Employers retain attorneys and other services to assist with their defense, so you should take the unemployment process very seriously. After listening to testimony, the hearing officer will decide whether you are, indeed, eligible for unemployment compensation. To have the best chance, we encourage all terminated employees to retain an Ohio employment attorney who is experienced with unemployment proceedings to assist with the process.
