Wrongful Termination Lawyer in Cleveland
Wrongful Discharge - Discrimination - Retaliation
Since Ohio is an at-will employment state, wrongful termination situations can be confusing at times. When the termination is based upon an illegal or unlawful employment action, a knowledgeable employment law lawyer can assist you in seeking compensation for the losses you have sustained due to your wrongful termination.
My employment law practice at The Bernard Law Firm is dedicated to helping employees exercise their rights in wrongful termination, discrimination and other employment law matters. I handle cases in state, federal and appellate courts and have argued cases before the Equal Employment Opportunity Commission and the Ohio Civil Rights Commission.
By utilizing my extensive experience, I am able to examine all aspects of your wrongful termination situation and help ensure that your rights are preserved at every stage of the process.
In certain situations, a previous complaint by the employee may be the cause of the termination, such as a sexual harassment or discrimination accusation. If you have lodged a complaint of this nature and are concerned that your job is in jeopardy, I may be able to take preventative actions and help you retain your job.
Any action taken by an employer based upon a claim against the employer or another employee is considered retaliation. Retaliation is illegal across the United States and should not be tolerated by any employee. I represent clients that have been wrongfully terminated, demoted or punished for exercising their legal rights. This can include retaliation due to the report of discrimination or sexual harassment, requesting disability or leave under FMLA (Family and Medical Leave Act), and whistleblowing.
