Employment Lawyers Near Me

Running a company is not easy. There are a lot of laws to follow regarding employee pay, safety, and treatment. This is called employment law and this area of law determines the rights of employees and employers and how they can legally work together. It regulates these relationships to ensure everyone is treated fairly and respectfully. These laws focus on how and when an employee can work, what amount they should be paid, and safe working conditions. These laws also outline when someone can be hired or fired.

If you believe your employer is violating the law, protect yourself by contacting an employment lawyer near you. Marshall Forman & Schlein has more than 50 years of combined experience helping Ohio workers seek compensation and justice for their employers’ actions. 

Common Labor Law Issues

Employment law encompasses a variety of topics, such as the following:

  • Discrimination (unfair treatment based on disability, age, race, gender, sexual orientation, or religion)
  • Sexual harassment
  • Wage and hour issues (not being paid on time or at the agreed-upon amount)
  • Overtime claims (not being paid appropriately for overtime)
  • Employee misconduct (not following workplace rules)
  • Wrongful termination (being fired for illegal reasons, such as discrimination or retaliation)
  • Employee misclassification (not properly classifying a worker as an employee or contractor)

Benefits of an Employment Lawyer

If you are an employee facing an employment issue, you may have concerns about your job security. An employment lawyer can protect the future of you and your family. They understand the state and federal laws that your employer is obligated to follow and will work hard to give you the legal representation you deserve. 

An employment lawyer can help you understand your legal options. You may be able to file a lawsuit directly against your employer or you may be required to contact a certain agency first (such as the Department of Labor or the Equal Opportunity Employment Commission). Your lawyer can help you make the right decision based on the facts of your case.

If your case goes to court, your employment lawyer can gather the necessary evidence to support your case. Evidence of communication, such as texts, emails, and phone calls can be helpful in proving your case. Keeping records of your employer’s behavior, such as in a journal, can provide necessary evidence. Any witness statements can also bolster your case and make the judge rule in your favor. 

An experienced employment law attorney can effectively represent you in all stages of the process, so it is better to seek legal help sooner rather than later.
