Employment Lawsuits

Sandusky Employment Law Attorneys

Advocating for Workers in Sandusky, Toledo, and Throughout Ohio

Employment law governs the relationship between employers and employees, encompassing a wide range of legal issues that arise in the workplace. From hiring and firing practices to wages, benefits, discrimination, harassment, and workplace safety, employment law plays a critical role in ensuring fair treatment and protection for both employers and employees.

In Ohio, employment is ”at-will,” which means that an employer can fire an employee for any reason or no reason at all, so long as the reason is not illegal. However, if an employer violates a state or federal employment law, an employee may be able to file a lawsuit against the employer for damages. Our Sandusky employment law attorneys at Murray & Murray can protect your rights, career, and best interests throughout the legal process.

Types of Employment Law Claims We Handle

At Murray & Murray, our employment law attorneys have extensive experience handling a wide range of cases. We are committed to protecting the rights of Ohio workers and can help you navigate the legal process from start to finish.

We represent clients in the following types of employment law claims:

  • Discrimination: It is illegal to discriminate against an employee or job applicant because of the individual’s race, color, religion, sex (including gender identity, sexual orientation, and pregnancy), national origin, age (40 or older), disability, or genetic information.
  • Harassment: Harassment is a form of discrimination that violates Title VII of the Civil Rights Act of 1964, the Age Discrimination in Employment Act of 1967, and the Americans with Disabilities Act of 1990.
  • Wage and Hour Disputes: The Fair Labor Standards Act (FLSA) establishes minimum wage, overtime pay, recordkeeping, and youth employment standards affecting employees in the private sector and in Federal, State, and local governments.
  • Family and Medical Leave Act (FMLA): The FMLA entitles eligible employees of covered employers to take unpaid, job-protected leave for specified family and medical reasons with continuation of group health insurance coverage under the same terms and conditions as if the employee had not taken leave.
  • Retaliation: An employer cannot retaliate against an employee for engaging in a protected activity, such as reporting discrimination, harassment, or wage and hour violations.
  • Wrongful Termination: Wrongful termination occurs when an employee is fired in violation of the law or a contractual agreement.
  • Employment Contract Disputes: Employment contracts can help protect the rights of both the employer and employee, but disputes can arise.
  • Employer Negligence: Employers have a duty to provide a safe work environment for their employees.
  • Whistleblower Claims: Under Ohio Revised Code Section 4113.52, an employer cannot take adverse action against an employee for reporting a violation or suspected violation of a state or federal law, rule, or regulation to an appropriate authority.
