Columbus Employment Lawyer

Bryant Legal, LLC focuses on protecting employees whose civil rights have been violated in the workplace and are committed to finding the best possible solution for your case.

 

Areas of Employment Law Practice

Discrimination

If you have been treated less favorably than your coworkers due to your age, race, national origin, religion, sex, or disability in the workplace, you may be experiencing discrimination. 

 

Discrimination isn’t just people throwing around slurs or making cruel comments (though it can be); it also can be subtle and affect your career in a number of ways: promotions, compensation, job assignments, training and apprenticeships, benefits, retirement plans, family or medical leave, and so on.

 

Discrimination is unlawful; if you believe you have been discriminated against, contact a Columbus employment lawyer immediately.

 

Family and Medical Leave

It doesn’t matter if you’ve recently celebrated the newest addition to your family or taken time off to care for a sick family member or for your own health; it is unlawful for your employer to punish you for taking leave under the Family and Medical Leave Act (FMLA).

 

Sexual Harassment

Sexual harassment in the workplace is unacceptable and can prevent employees from doing their jobs, and in some of the worst cases, even hold people’s careers hostage, unless they submit to unwanted sexual acts.

 

If your employer has failed to take action for its employees’ harassment, it is liable for its employees’ behavior.

 

In any case, we are here to put a stop to sexual harassment in the workplace and will support you every step of the way.

 

Unpaid Wages

Employees’ overtime pay and minimum wage are protected under the Fair Labor Standards Act (FLSA). If your wages are being withheld or unpaid, or if you don’t know whether or not you’re considered an exempt employee, Bryant Legal, LLC can ensure you’re getting paid fairly.

 

Wrongful Termination

Columbus is the capital of an at-will employment state, which means an employer can fire, discipline, or demote an employee for any reason as long as the reason is not illegal.

 

The key with determining a wrongful determination is whether or not the underlying reason is illegal.

 

Bryant Legal, LLC can help make that determination and file a suit if necessary.

 

Retaliation

When an employee files a claim or a complaint about any of the above situations (among others, such as an unsafe work environment), employers cannot punish the employee for doing so. Retaliation can be a number of adverse employment actions:

 

  • Demotion
  • Firing
  • Failing to promote
  • Suspension
  • Termination
  • Reassignment to a different position
  • Reduction in hours

 

If an employer retaliates against an employee, the employee can file a lawsuit against them.
