EMPLOYMENT & LABOR LAW

Our Employment and Labor attorneys counsel and represent public and private companies, and public sector entities across the entire spectrum of labor and employment issues, including lawsuits and administrative proceedings that arise from federal employment laws such as Title VII, Age Discrimination in Employment Act (ADEA), Family and Medical Leave Act (FMLA), Americans with Disabilities (ADA), the Fair Labor Standards Act (FLSA), the Worker Adjustment and Retraining Notification (WARN), as well as their statutory counterparts under Ohio law. We work cooperatively with in-house counsel, public officials, risk management professionals and human resource departments in handling all employment-related issues, including federal and state labor and employment law compliance, preparation and implementation of personnel policies and employment agreements, employee hiring, employee discipline, leaves of absence and accommodation issues, affirmative action, discrimination claims, workers’ compensation, benefit administration and health and safety regulations.

Our attorneys provide representation in all federal and state courts, and before the Ohio Civil Rights Commission, Equal Employment Opportunity Commission, National Labor Relations Board, and Department of Labor.
