How Can a Lawyer Protect My Rights?

If a worker in Powell has had their rights violated, then we encourage them to reach out to an experienced employment lawyer immediately. An employment attorney in Powell can collect helpful evidence to show a violation occurred, negotiate with an employer, and identify the next steps to take to obtain a favorable remedy to the dispute.

The precise steps you must take depend on the violation. For example, if you have faced discrimination, harassment, or retaliation, then you typically file an administrative charge before you can sue. This charge is filed with either the Ohio Civil Rights Commission or with the Equal Employment Opportunity Commission (EEOC), which is a federal agency. They can investigate and possibly get involved to resolve the dispute. Eventually, you might have the right to sue in court.

If you have a wage and hour dispute, conversely, you can go immediately into court and file a lawsuit, either as an individual or as part of a larger group in a class action.

What Remedies Can I Receive?

A complaint starts the process, and an investigation usually follows. If your employer did violate your rights under state and/or federal law, you might obtain certain remedies. Each case is different, but the remedies might include:

  • You are reinstated into your job
  • You receive backpay or frontpay
  • You receive attorneys’ and other legal fees
  • Your employer must pay compensatory, punitive, and/or liquidated damages
