Protection from all forms of discrimination or mistreatment at work

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.
