Employees in Ohio have a wide variety of protections under various state and federal laws concerning pay, discrimination, harassment, misclassification, retaliation, and family leave. When an employer fails to pay an employee overtime or engages in harassment or retaliation after an employee has taken FMLA leave, for example, it is critical to seek advice from a labor lawyer who can help. When you are searching for labor and employment lawyers near me, you should know that the dedicated advocates at Marshall Forman & Schlein can assist you.
At Marshall Forman & Schlein, we represent clients in a wide range of labor and employment law matters in the Columbus area, including but not limited to the following:
Our Columbus labor and employment lawyers regularly represent employees in FMLA cases involving violations of employee rights. Under the FMLA, eligible employees who work for covered employees can take up to 12 weeks of unpaid job-protected leave for a variety of family and medication reasons, including the birth of a child or placement of a foster or adopted child, to provide care for a spouse or other close family member with a serious health condition, or to care for themselves when they are diagnosed with a serious health condition.
Employers cannot unlawfully deny you family leave or retaliate or discriminate against you when you exercise your rights under the FMLA.
Many wage and hours law issues arise under both the Fair Labor Standards Act (FLSA) and Ohio state law, including unpaid overtime, failure to pay minimum wage, failure to pay for rest breaks, and more.
While the federal minimum wage is only $7.25 per hour, employees in states like Ohio that have a higher minimum ($9.30 per hour in Ohio) must be paid the higher state minimum wage. In addition, non-exempt employees must be paid overtime wages at time and one-half for every hour worked beyond the 40-hour workweek. There are many different ways in which employers can violate wage and hour laws in Ohio, and it is important for employees to seek assistance to obtain the wages they are owed.
If you believe your rights as an employee were violated, you should seek advice from an experienced Ohio labor and employment law attorney near you. There are a wide variety of laws that provide specific protections to employees, and our firm can assess your case today to determine if you may have a claim.
