What Are My Options When My Rights as an Employee Have Been Breached?
If your rights as an employee in Upper Arlington have been breached, we strongly recommend that you retain the counsel of an experienced employment attorney immediately. An employment attorney can review your case, gather evidence on your behalf, represent you in any conversations with your employer, and help you to understand what steps to take next to remedy your situation.
The specific action that you will take is dependent upon the type of employment law violation that has occurred. For example, if you have been discriminated against or have witnessed discrimination in the workplace, we can help you file a complaint with the Ohio Civil Rights Commission, or file a complaint with the federal Equal Employment Opportunity Commission (EEOC). If you have a wage and hour complaint, on the other hand, we can proceed to file a lawsuit on your behalf for unpaid overtime or unpaid wages on an individual or collective (group) basis.
After filing a complaint, an investigation will ensue. If it is found that your employer did indeed violate your rights and state or/and federal labor laws, you will be entitled to certain remedies. These remedies vary on a case-by-case basis, but may include:
- Reinstatement to your original position;
- Backpay for wages;
- Front pay;
- Payment for legal fees and attorneys’ fees;
- Compensatory damages;
- Punitive damages; and
- Liquidated damages.
Why Work with a Skilled Upper Arlington Employment Law Attorney
There is no requirement to hire an employment law attorney when navigating a breach of your rights as an employee, but doing so is recommended. Labor and employment law violations can be hard to prove, and understanding your rights and options may be complicated without the help of your own counsel. When you hire an employment lawyer, the attorney will handle 100 percent of your case and will be knowledgeable in various legal aspects, including the original employment law, timelines for filing or appealing a case, types of evidence that may be submitted, remedies available, and more.
