Employment Law

Employment law cases in Cincinnati can make for challenging legal battles. Often, it’s your word versus your employer or your supervisor. Some law firms avoid  potentially contentious legal battles. We’re proud to handle these cases, since we truly want to help workers stand up for their rights.

Employment law cases in Cincinnati can cover a wide range – from an employer retaliating against a worker for speaking out, to discrimination or harassment in the workplace. Sometimes, it’s your supervisor who’s harassing you. Other times, your company may be violating state or federal labor laws.

Many Cincinnati employment law cases we deal with involve violations of the Family and Medical Leave Act (FMLA). By law, most employers must grant workers the right to take unpaid time off from work for medical reasons, including caring for a family member or a new child. When employers violate the FMLA, it’s our job to hold them accountable for their actions.

Wage Disputes

Strict state and federal wage laws exist in Ohio when it comes to paying employees for the hours they work. If your employer tries to pay you less money for the time you worked, you have rights. As wage law attorneys serving Cincinnati, we can demand the compensation you deserve. Common cases we regularly handle involving wage disputes in Cincinnati and throughout Hamilton County include:

  • Unpaid wages
  • Unpaid overtime
  • Minimum wage violations
  • Employee misclassified as contractor
  • Not paying for rest breaks as negotiated in a contract
  • Not paying for travel time as negotiated in a contract
  • Not paying premium overtime pay for hours worked beyond 40 hours a week

All these violations are examples of wage theft. You did your job. Your employer should keep their promise and pay you. When they don’t, it’s our job to hold them accountable for their actions. Sometimes, this involves filing a complaint on your behalf. Other times, we may take them to court and fight for the money you deserve.

It’s also important to understand that you might not be the only one dealing with wage disputes at your company. If that’s the case, we can file a class action lawsuit on behalf of yourself and all the workers at your company who are not being paid the money they deserve.

Workplace Discrimination

Discrimination in the workplace is a serious legal issue. If you believe you have been discriminated against at work or when applying for job in Cincinnati, it’s important that you take strong legal action to protect your rights. That’s why our workplace discrimination attorneys serving Cincinnati want to meet with you.

Workplace discrimination can take many different forms. Some of the most common examples of workplace description involve employers discriminating against someone based on a protected class. This includes discrimination based on:

  • Race
  • Age (over 40 years old)
  • Gender
  • Sexual orientation
  • Disability
  • Religious beliefs
  • Pregnancy

Workplace discrimination can cover a wide range of violations, including:

  • Not hiring someone based on discrimination.
  • Not promoting someone at work due to discrimination.
  • Making fun of someone at work based on discrimination.

Discrimination cases can be especially difficult, since many employers often deny doing anything wrong. They often try to come up with other reasons for why they didn’t hire you or promote you. Or they might try to claim they gave the job or a promotion to someone more qualified.

You know the truth. It is our job to find the evidence you need to build a strong discrimination case. Bigotry in any form is unacceptable. As your workplace discrimination attorney serving Cincinnati and communities throughout Hamilton County, we can vigorously fight for your rights and demand justice on your behalf.

No one should be harassed at work. That’s why strict state and federal laws exist in Ohio designed to prevent workplace harassment.

Harassment can take many different forms. Some of the most common – and most serious – harassment cases we handle in Cincinnati and throughout Hamilton County include:

  • Sexual harassment
  • Racial harassment
  • Hostile work environment

Offensive comment, teasing, taunting and other forms of verbal harassment, particularly about someone’s race, gender, disability, age, sexual orientation or another protected category.

No one should have to work in a hostile work environment. If you are being harassed at work, take a stand. Contact our law firm. We can help you file a formal workplace harassment complaint on your behalf and take other legal action if necessary.

Wrongful Termination

Wrongful termination cases can be extremely complicated in Ohio. That’s because Ohio is an at-will employment state. Even so, that doesn’t give employers the right to fire anyone for any reasons. Strict federal, state and sometimes even local laws exist that protect workers’ rights in Ohio. This is especially true if you believe your employer fired you because of your race, gender, disability, age or other protected reasons. It’s also against the law for employers to fire you for reporting illegal pay practices, unsafe working conditions and other unlawful activity.

Our wrongful termination attorneys serving Cincinnati can fight for your rights and help you hold your employer accountable for their actions. We know how the legal system works in Hamilton County. We’re familiar with Ohio’s labor laws. We are prepared to do the work that needs to be done to build the strongest possible legal case. Demand the justice you deserve. Contact our law firm. You can count on our wrongful termination lawyers serving Cincinnati and communities throughout Hamilton County.
