Comprehensive Representation in Ohio Employment Law Matters
Because it is our core practice area, our lawyers have extensive experience and in-depth knowledge of the wide range of legal concepts associated with employment law. We can assist with:
Wage, Hour & Overtime Issues
The Division of Commerce’s Bureau of Wage & Hour Administration administers and enforces many different regulations on payment of wages, including:
- Minimum wage, which is $8.80 for non-tipped employees in Ohio;
- Payment of overtime, as companies are required to pay 1.5 times an employee’s wages when he or she works more than 40 hours in a week;
- Prevailing wages on public construction projects; and
- Many others.
Discrimination & Civil Rights Cases
Federal and state civil rights laws prohibit treating workers differently on account race, sex, gender, age, disability, and many other characteristics. Employees have legal options when they are subjected to such misconduct as:
- Wrongful termination;
- Discrimination, including misconduct against workers engaging in protected activities;
- Sexual harassment, either as quid pro quo or when actions create a hostile work environment; and
- Employment retaliation.
