Employment Law & Civil Rights

Cleveland, Ohio Employment Law Attorney
Employee Rights - Civil Rights Violations

For more than 20 years, I have been protecting employees' rights in employment law claims before the Equal Employment Opportunity Commission and the Ohio Civil Rights Commission and in state, federal and appellate courts.

At The Bernard Law Firm, I do not hesitate to take on large employers and their expensive lawyers, I and have obtained substantial settlements and verdicts for clients. Contact my employment law firm to learn how I can help you.

I represent people in employment law claims against employers involving:

  • Title VII job discrimination claims based on race, national origin, ethnicity, religion or gender
  • Age Discrimination in Employment Act (ADEA)
  • Americans with Disabilities Act (ADA)
  • Pregnancy discrimination
  • Sexual harassment and hostile workplaces
  • Family and Medical Leave Act (FMLA)
  • Federal Civil Rights Act of 1991 compliance

Civil Rights Violations Outside of Employment

Violations of civil rights and discrimination can happen in other areas of life besides employment. I have represented people in a wide variety of cases where they have been the victims of sexual harassment, discrimination based on age, disability, handicap, national origin, ethnicity, sex, race, pregnancy or religion, retaliation, or other civil rights violations. I have also brought §1983 civil rights claims against municipalities and cities.
