Options after a Violation of Your Rights

An employment lawyer in Westerville is a big help if you believe your employer has broken the law. Our employment lawyers can review the evidence in the case, speak to witnesses, and decide the best path forward for remedying the violation. Without an attorney, you will be at sea trying to fully understand the myriad legal issues and how to respond to them.

The specific steps you take to defend your rights will depend on the violation. For example, if your employer has denied you overtime or has not paid the minimum wage, then you can go into court and file a lawsuit.

However, if you have suffered workplace discrimination or harassment, you need to file an administrative charge first with either the federal Equal Employment Opportunity Commission (EEOC) or the Ohio Civil Rights Commission. These administrative agencies can investigate and propose mediation.  Only after filing the administrative complaint can you sue.

Remedies for an Employment or Labor Law Violation

When an employer violates a workers’ rights, then the worker might be entitled to any of the following:

  • Job reinstatement
  • Backpay or frontpay
  • Compensatory damages
  • Punitive damages
  • Liquidated damages as a penalty
  • Attorney’s fees and court costs

Every case is different, so reach out to an attorney to discuss possible remedies available in your case.
