Lancaster Employment Law Attorney
You have the right to pursue the career of your choice without facing unfair impediments from employers, exploitation of your effort, or undue safety risks. In the United States, there are many state and federal laws in place to ensure that you are safe and appropriately compensated in the workplace and that you do not face injustice at the hands of your employer. These laws and their enforcement are known collectively as employment law.
At Marshall & Forman, LLC, we care about the working person and his or her rights. If you feel your rights were violated, contact our firm to discuss your case in detail and determine whether you have grounds for a claim with the Equal Employment Opportunity Commission (EEOC), the Ohio Department of Labor, or one of the divisions within the United States Department of Labor.
Case Types We Handle
Our team works with clients facing the following case types:
- Wrongful termination;
- At-will employment issues;
- Non-compete agreements;
- Sexual harassment claims;
- Family and Medical Leave Act (FMLA) rights and violations;
- Overtime claims;
- Denial of benefits or compensation;
- Wage and hour disputes; and
- Employee misconduct.
If you are not sure if your case fits into one of these categories, discuss it in detail with us.
Compensation you can Recover through an Employment Claim
Sometimes, a violation can be resolved simply by discussing it with your supervisor or with your company’s Human Resources department. In other cases, a state or federal agency like the Ohio Department of Labor or the Equal Employment Opportunity Commission (EEOC) gets involved to determine the scope of the violation and help you work out a settlement. When this is not effective, you also have the right to file a lawsuit against your employer to have the case heard and potentially resolved in court.
An investigation or lawsuit could result in you being reinstated to your job. It could also result in monetary compensation for your damages related to the violation, which can include:
- If you were injured or otherwise suffered physical harm because of the violation, compensation for your medical expenses;
- Compensation for your emotional trauma related to the violation; and
- Compensation for the wages and benefits you did not receive due to the violations, such as overtime hours that were not compensated appropriately and employment benefits lost after a wrongful termination.
Depending on the nature of your case, the company may also be required to compensate you for your lawyer and court costs.
