Dublin Employment Disputes Lawyer

Since 2000, our Dublin employment dispute attorneys have prioritized the needs of the city’s over 26,000 employees any time they have suffered unlawful treatment in their Ohio

workplaces.

We understand that discrimination, sexual harassment, retaliation, and wage and hour disputes happen often here and across the country. Franklin, Delaware, and Union counties allow employees throughout the state to take a stand against unlawful workplace practices to seek the legal remedy necessary for their unique circumstances and help keep these hurtful practices from happening to other employees.

Our Ohio employment dispute attorneys and team have successfully represented clients for nearly 30 years. What we do differently at Oliver Law Office is ensure our clients know how important they are to us. You are not simply another case. You are not a number.

Our law firm founder and managing attorney, Jami S. Oliver, has been named to the Best Lawyers 2024 list in multiple practice areas. Allow our skilled team, led by one of Ohio’s best, to help you make informed decisions about your case and future, starting with a consultation.

Let’s face it — sometimes work can be stressful. You may have to deal with annoying co-workers or entitled customers. Maybe you have strict deadlines. But you shouldn’t have to be stressed out because your employer is violating the law.

But it happens. Some employers want to cut corners and pinch pennies, even when it violates the law. Or something illegal may happen, like sexual harassment, and they simply turn the other way. It takes too much time and energy to deal with these issues, so they just ignore them.

Workers should not have to worry about employment issues. They should not be anxious to come to work every day because they fear discrimination or harassment or worry that they won’t get paid.

Common Employment Disputes

 EMPLOYMENT DISPUTES

Some examples of workplace dispute claims we handle include, but are not limited to:

  • Wrongful termination allegations. Like almost all other states, Ohio is an at-will employment state, meaning that an employer may terminate any employee for any reason. There are a couple of exceptions: if a contract is in place or the employer violates specific discrimination or retaliation laws, it can be considered wrongful termination. These cases are often complex and emotionally charged.
  • Severance agreements. When an employee is laid off, companies may offer certain types of compensation in return for signing a contract that includes non-disclosure or non-compete agreements. These limitations can cause issues and make it harder to find employment.
  • Wage disputes. This issue occurs when an employer is accused of not correctly paying an employee for work performed. This may include not paying workers for overtime or not allowing regular paid breaks. Employers must also pay workers at least minimum wage, currently $10.45 per hour in Ohio.
  • Discrimination and harassment claims. There are state and federal laws that protect workers and job applicants from discrimination, harassment, and unfair treatment by managers or co-workers due to a person’s race, national origin, age, religion, sexual orientation, pregnancy, or disability. If an employee is seeking an accommodation for a disability or religious belief, the company cannot legally deny a reasonable accommodation. A company can also not retaliate when an employee exercises their legal rights, such as filing a workers’ compensation claim.
