Employees should be able to work in a safe environment free from unlawful harassment and discrimination. They also have the right to be paid fairly according to state and federal wage and hour laws. HKM Employment Attorneys understand the requirements, laws, regulations, and other legal issues involved in employment law. If you suspect that your employer has violated your rights, it is crucial that you reach out to an employment attorney.
Doing so can help you understand your rights and legal options. Employment law is complex, and an attorney can help you determine whether you have a valid claim. If you have a valid claim, an attorney can help you decide whether to file a claim using the state or federal process and explain the types of damages available. Taking the time to receive effective legal counsel quickly can break your legal claim.

Legal Counsel for Employees Who Have Been Wrongfully Terminated
You may have the right to pursue a wrongful termination lawsuit if you have been wrongfully terminated from your job. Employers cannot fire employees for illegal reasons in Ohio. For example, your employee cannot fire you for suffering a workplace injury due to discrimination based on your membership in a protected class, taking leave under the family and medical leave act, or filing a claim against your employer for an unlawful act.
Cincinnati Workplace Discrimination Attorneys
Multiple laws protect employees from discrimination, including Title VII of the Civil Rights Act, the Americans with Disabilities Act, and the Age Discrimination in Employment Act (ADEA). The Ohio Fair Practices Act also protects employees from unlawful discrimination. If you have been discriminated against based on your age, disability, race, religion, national origin, or gender, it is important that you reach out to an attorney.
Legal Counsel for Employees Subjected to Sexual Harassment
Sexual harassment continues to be an issue for employees. Employers are responsible for protecting employees from sexual harassment by business owners, managers, or even peers. Quid pro quo sexual harassment involves offering job benefits for sexual favors. Another type of sexual harassment involves creating a hostile work environment in which one or more employees continue to harass others in the company sexually.
Cincinnati Wage and Hour Violation Attorneys
Ohio employers must pay their employees a fair wage according to federal and state wage and hour loss. When employers do not pay employees minimum wage, do not provide benefits required in an employment contract, or try to make employees work off the clock, they engage in unlawful practices. If you believe your wages have been wrongly calculated or your employer owes you compensation for the time you have worked, you may have a valid claim for your lost income and additional compensation.

At HKM Employment Attorneys, we believe that federal and state laws protecting individual workers are some of the most important laws on the books.
