Blacklick Employment Law Attorney

Our team is committed to protecting worker rights, and our Blacklick Employment Law Attorney can go toe-to-toe with your employer.

In the past, workers served at the complete mercy of their employers. Hours were long, the pay was scarce, and a worker could be abused and harassed without consequence. Today, state and federal laws provide ample protection for employees, but some employers continue to take advantage of their workers. If you believe you have been subjected to unfair or possibly illegal conduct, you should meet with a Blacklick employment law attorney to review your case. You might have the ability to seek legal redress.

Employment Disputes Our Firm Handles

We have deep experience representing workers in many different types of employment disputes. Some of the more common disputes we have worked on include:

  • Unlawful termination
  • Harassment or discrimination on the job
  • Wage and hour disputes (overtime pay, minimum wage, etc.)
  • Medical leave disputes
  • Workplace safety and health
  • Severance negotiation

This is only a small sampling of the types of cases we take. If you believe your employer is violating your rights, you should reach out to our Blacklick employment law attorney today.

Options for Resolving a Dispute

State and federal law provide powerful remedies for employees who have suffered at the hands of their employers. However, the process for vindicating your rights might differ depending on the dispute.

If you have been harassed or discriminated against, then you will need to file an administrative discrimination charge first. You can file this charge at either the Ohio Civil Rights Commission or with the Equal Employment Opportunity Commission, which is a federal agency. This administrative charge is required before you can bring a lawsuit.

If you have been denied overtime, you could file an administrative action or instead go straight to court and file a lawsuit, which might be more effective.

Each case is different. Settlement is sometimes possible, which allows our clients to avoid lengthy and stressful court proceedings. In other cases, an employer doubles down and insists that they have done nothing wrong, so filing a lawsuit is often unavoidable.

Remedies for Employment Law Disputes

The remedies our clients could receive will depend on the dispute and what state or federal law allows. Some of our clients have managed to receive:

  • Backpay
  • Front pay
  • Job reinstatement or promotion
  • Compensatory damages
  • Punitive damages
  • Liquidated damages
  • Attorneys’ fees and court costs

We also accept cases on a contingency basis, meaning we do not charge attorneys’ fees unless we win a case. This type of fee agreement reduces the risk of our clients, who owe us no fees if we do not win their case. Contingency fee arrangements also give us an incentive not to take a case unless we think it has merit.
