Zanesville Employment Law Attorneys

You may love the work you do, but at the end of the day, it is all business. Your work may be fulfilling and give you purpose, but is your employer treating you fairly? 

Employers know how to take advantage of employees. They may treat you unfairly with mundane rules or discipline you wrongfully, making you wonder if what your boss is doing is actually legal.

You need to keep your employer honest. That is where the Zanesville employment law attorneys at Marshall Forman & Schlein can help.

Why You Need an Employment Lawyer

There are many reasons why an employment lawyer may come in handy, such as:

  • You get injured on the job. Workers’ compensation issues are common. If you have been injured on the job, an employment lawyer can help you file a claim so you get paid appropriately. They will also help you with the recovery process, ensuring you get the medical care you need.
  • You have been mistreated. Sometimes employers favor employees or discriminate against the ones they do not like. If your employer is always punishing you for things that happen or coming up with rules just for you, you need to document these issues. This could be a discrimination case, especially if it can be proven that your employer is discriminating against you based on a protected class, such as age, race, gender, sexual orientation, pregnancy, or disability. 
  • You were wrongly terminated. Ohio is an at-will state, which means you can be fired for any reason. You cannot, however, be fired based on discrimination or retaliation. So if you were let go because you are part of a protected class or because you exercised your legal rights (filed a workers’ compensation claim, for example), then your lawyer can help you file a wrongful termination claim.
  • You are being harassed. Sexual harassment is common in the workplace. If a co-worker or manager is asking you to engage in sexually explicit activities and is threatening your job in the process, contact a lawyer for help filing a claim. 
  • There are issues with your paycheck. If you’re being paid less than you expected, it could be a legal issue. Many employers purposely find ways to reduce the pay they owe their employees. This is called wage theft, and it is illegal. If you notice an error, let your employer know right away. Sometimes employers make honest mistakes, and they should try to resolve the issue. If your employer argues with you and refuses to pay you what you are owed, seek legal help right away.
