Federal and Ohio laws prohibit employers from discriminating against job applicants or employees based on protected characteristics such as age, race, religion, sex/gender, disability, LGBT, military status, or pregnancy. The laws prohibit any adverse employment actions, up to and including failure to hire or wrongful termination. Employers will rarely reveal their discriminatory motives when they make employment decisions. Our Columbus Ohio employment discrimination attorneys use their extensive knowledge and years of experience to uncover and prove discrimination.
If you are being abused or treated unfairly at work, call our office for a free consultation with an employment attorney. We’ll let you know if we think you have a case and how we can help you. We take cases on a contingency fee basis, meaning our fees are generally based on the size of the monetary award we obtain for you or they are otherwise paid from the employer directly. If we aren’t successful, then you don’t pay. Also, many employment laws allow us to recover our fees from the other party, enabling you to keep most, if not all, of your damages award. Call our Columbus Ohio overtime attorneys and employment lawyers at 614-949-1181, or contact us online to schedule your free consultation, and get started today holding your employer accountable for their harmful mistakes and illegal acts. We fight for your rights to proper pay and employment consistent with state and federal laws.
