Employment Disputes We Handle

Employment law and labor law are large fields, and we have broad experience across both of them. If you have a question about a dispute, contact us for a free consultation so we can advise you about your rights regarding:

  • Workplace discrimination or harassment
  • Unlawful termination
  • Overtime pay
  • Contract disputes
  • Minimum wage and overtime
  • Severance negotiation
  • Whistleblower protection
  • Medical leave disputes
  • Family and Medical Leave Act (FMLA) violations
  • Health and safety issues in the workplace

These areas are only some of the ones in which we practice. If you believe an employer has treated you unfairly, contact us to review the circumstances of your case.

How to Protect Your Rights

The precise steps you should take depend on how your rights were violated. A key first step in any dispute is to collect all relevant evidence, which can include pay stubs, time sheets, and email communications. If you have a witness who is relevant, share this person’s identity with your attorney as well.

If you were discriminated against because of a protected characteristic, then you should probably file an administrative complaint first. This filing can be with the federal Equal Employment Opportunity Commission (EEOC) or with the Ohio Civil Rights Commission. Filing an administrative charge is a prerequisite before you can sue for discrimination. The administrative agency might investigate and encourage each side to settle.

In other cases, you might immediately go to court and file suit. For example, if an employer has not paid you the necessary minimum wage, you can bring a lawsuit and name your employer as the defendant. The same is true if you have a dispute regarding your employment contract.

Possible remedies will depend on the dispute but could involve some or all of the following:

  • Back pay
  • Front pay
  • Reinstatement to your job
  • Compensatory damages
  • Liquidated damages
  • Punitive damages
  • Attorneys’ fees and legal costs

The amount you receive will depend in large part on the evidence you have, so it is wise to meet with a lawyer as soon as you suspect your rights have been violated.
