Cleveland Employment Law Attorneys
Our jobs are important to us. We need them to earn wages so we can support ourselves and our families. When we walk into the workplace, we assume we can feel safe and welcome, regardless of who we are and where we came from. An employee should be judged according to his or her skills and performance alone. Unfortunately, this is not always the case. When an employee is treated differently, reprimanded, fired or not hired based on his or her race, gender, age, national origin or religion, the employer has committed discrimination, which is illegal. If you feel you have been a victim of discrimination, wrongful termination or sexual harassment, you should seek an experienced attorney who will carefully examine your case.
Knowledgeable Cuyahoga County Age Discrimination Lawyer
At Wincek & DeRosa, our attorneys have decades of experience helping a diverse group of individuals throughout Northern Ohio who have experienced the following:
- Wrongful termination
- Disability discrimination
- Sexual harassment
- Age discrimination
- Racial discrimination
- National origin discrimination
- Religion discrimination
Ohio is an at-will employment state, meaning an employer can hire and fire an individual without reason and the employee can do the same. This complicates the employment law process. Special care and attention to detail must occur. Our lawyers will develop a very comprehensive complaint after investigating the timeline of your employment, including any awards, advancements, warnings and any other events that may determine whether or not your termination was legitimate. We interview co-workers and consult experts and work diligently as we pursue the best outcome possible.
