What Options Do I Have when an Employer Violates My Rights?

Employment law is a broad field that encompasses both state and federal statutes. Our clients might have rights under one or more laws. The process our clients follow will depend on the case and the facts alleged.

For example, if your boss has violated the minimum wage or overtime laws in Ohio, you can bring a lawsuit in court for back pay and other compensation. The same is true if an employer violated an employment contract and terminated you without cause.

Other employment disputes require that you go through an administrative process first. For example, if you believe you have faced workplace discrimination on the basis of race, sex, religion, or age, you must first file an administrative complaint with either the Equal Employment Opportunity Commission (EEOC) or with the Ohio Civil Rights Commission. These agencies get the first opportunity to investigate and possibly facilitate a settlement through mediation. If the agency refuses to do so, then you have the option to file a lawsuit in court.

Reach out to our Gahanna employment law attorney with questions. Every employment dispute is unique and requires an individualized review.

What Remedies Are Available?

Many employees are eligible to receive compensation for the violation of their employment rights. Depending on the case, you could receive:

  • Reinstatement in your job
  • Backpay or front pay
  • Compensatory damages
  • Liquidated damages
  • Punitive damages
  • Attorneys’ fees

These remedies are designed to compensate for the financial losses you have suffered. Attorneys’ fees also make hiring an attorney more feasible. Of course, our attorney works on a contingency basis, meaning our firm does not charge any fees unless we win your case.
