Areas of Employment Law Practice

Discrimination

If an employer treats an employee less favorably than others due to their age, race, national origin, religion, sex, or disability in the workplace, that is discrimination.

 

Discrimination is not just refusing to hire people of a certain race or using slurs; it can be pervasive and very subtle in work environments. Discrimination can affect whether or not an employee receives promotion, fair compensation, certain job assignments, training and apprenticeship, benefits, retirement plans, family or medical leave, and more.

 

Discrimination is illegal and can be grounds for a lawsuit. Contact a Toledo employment lawyer at Bryant Legal, LLC for more information.

 

Family and Medical Leave

Receiving adverse treatment at your job because you’ve taken medical or family leave through the Family and Medical Leave Act (FMLA) is unlawful. 

 

Sexual Harassment

Sexual harassment can create a hostile work environment, and in the worse cases, it can hold careers hostage unless the victim submits to unwanted sexual acts or advances.

 

Employers that have failed to take action for sexual harassment are liable for all employees’ behavior.

 

Bryant Legal, LLC will put a stop to sexual harassment in your workplace and ensure you are properly compensated, while supporting you at every step.

 

Wage Violations

Overtime and minimum wage are protected under the Fair Labor Standards Act (FLSA). If your wages are being withheld from you or you are not being paid, regardless of being an exempt or tipped employee, we will ensure you receive the compensation you are owed.

 

Wrongful Termination

Toledo is located in an at-will employment state, which means an employer can fire, discipline, or demote its employees for any reason, provided that reason is not illegal.

 

Wrongful termination occurs when the reason is illegal. The Bryant Legal, LLC team in Toledo can help you determine whether or not your termination was wrongful, and if it is, we can help you file a lawsuit.

 

Retaliation

If you have been punished for filing a complaint or speaking about most of the above situations, you should contact Bryant Legal, LLC immediately, as you may have experienced retaliation. Retaliation is illegal and can include the following:

 

  • Being demoted or losing out on a promotion
  • Being fired or terminated
  • Being suspended
  • Being reassigned to a different position
  • Getting a reduction in hours worked or pay
