The Rights and Protections for Employees

Under Federal and Ohio state laws, workers have a number of rights and protections afforded to them. This includes protection from all forms of mistreatment or discrimination at work.

Federal and Ohio law prohibit employers from discriminating against current employees and job applicants based on a number of protected characteristics that include race, religion, age, sex and gender, disability, LGBTQ+, military status, and pregnancy.

Laws such as the Fair Labor Standards Act, the Family and Medical Leave Act, and others lay out the legal protections that workers receive such as not being wrongfully terminated, the right to a non-hostile work environment, and right to fair pay. Employers will often go out of their way to mask discriminatory or unlawful motives behind their employment decisions.

If you believe that you are facing workplace discrimination, harassment, unpaid wages, or other employment violations, our labor law attorneys are ready to apply their years of experience to helping you uncover the full situation.

We can determine next steps to take to prove the discrimination, harassment, or other employment wrongs.

Frequently Asked Questions

There are a number of factors that impact how long a case may take to resolve. Some cases may be settled before a lawsuit while others may escalate to the point of a lawsuit being pursued. In some situations, you may see all parties coming together to mediate employment disputes with the help of private mediation or the EEOC. Our employment attorneys in Columbus, Ohio will always work to resolve your case as efficiently as possible – though sometimes a significant amount of time may pass.

A free consultation with one of our Columbus overtime attorneys can vary in length. Our consultations are detailed and usually performed by an employment attorney who will work to collect a complete view of the details related to your employment as possible. We use these details to determine if there is any means or bases to pursue legal action against your employer. We will let all prospective clients know of possible claims we determine following a consultation.

Coffman Legal, LLC typically represents clients on a contingency fee basis. This means that we do not receive any compensation unless we recover money for you. Most employment laws address the recovery of attorneys’ fees and legal costs to help ensure that the workers receive fair compensation, regardless of their financial ability to pay an attorney. We are therefore able to provide legal representation for any employee – even if you think you are unable to afford representation. We have great success in recovering unpaid overtime compensation for our clients.

If you were recently fired, you will be able to know if you were wrongfully terminated following a free consultation with our Columbus employment lawyers. We will complete a comprehensive view of your employment, including details that relate directly to your termination. From there, we will be able to let you know if we believe you are dealing with a case of wrongful termination that is tied to an unlawful reason.

All employees (who are considered non-exempt employees) are entitled to overtime pay by default – unless they are exempt. An exempt employee is something that your employer must prove. Sometimes employers mistakenly or knowingly list an employee as exempt, even when they should be listed as non-exempt. If you believe you are a non-exempt employee who is entitled to overtime pay after working over 40 hours a week, contact our Columbus overtime attorneys for assistance.
