Assert Your Rights or Maintain Compliance Under State and Federal Law
Title VII of the Civil Rights Act, the Age Discrimination in Employment Act, and the Americans with Disabilities Act prohibit employers from discriminating against employees in certain protected classes. Under state and federal law, it is unlawful to discriminate on the basis of age, race, sex/gender, religion, national origin, genetic information, or disability (including pregnancy).
Our lawyers at Stebelton Snider assist employees who believe they have been discriminated against in asserting their rights under these acts. We also advise employers regarding maintaining compliance with the acts and handling employment disputes arising regarding allegations of workplace harassment or discrimination. Workplace discrimination lawsuits often involve:
- Unequal pay
- Unequal job responsibilities
- Disparate treatment/unfair treatment (regarding promotions, hiring, firing, and other matters)
- Retaliation for filing a workers’ compensation claim
- Wrongful termination/wrongful discharge
Small Business Owners — Need Advice About a Discrimination Complaint?
Small business owners must tread carefully when facing alleged discrimination or harassment incidents. Without the added protection of an on-site human resources department, small business owners are responsible for investigating complaints and diffusing situations before matters are escalated and they are exposed to significant liability. At Stebelton Snider, our employment law attorneys offer HR consulting services for small businesses in Central Ohio. Our attorneys can investigate complaints, advise regarding steps for moving forward with minimal liability, and offer advice on how to minimize risk for future potential claims through effective employee handbooks and policies, as well as HR training.
