Current Class and Collective Actions

Our Ohio employment law attorneys work for you

"This not only helped me but thousands of other people who were being taken advantage of." - Sherry M.

Most of the wage law cases we handle at Nilges Draher LLC involve class actions and collective actions. This means that the employer has an illegal pay practice that applies to a group of similarly situated employees who have collectively acted against their employer.

We have earned the respect of our adversaries and of the courts as "abled and experienced counsel" in these types of cases. We have been successful in resolving many of these cases before filing a lawsuit. That's because our adversaries take us seriously.
