Cincinnati, Ohio, Employment Law Attorneys Defending Against Retaliation

State and federal laws protect workers; these laws say that employees cannot be fired or otherwise retaliated against for engaging in certain protected conduct or being a member of a protected class. If an employer has taken a negative action against you, contact the lawyers at Bennett P. Allen, LLC. We can take an in-depth look at your situation.

At our Cincinnati law firm, we represent employees throughout Ohio who have been discriminated against for:

  • Reporting harassment or discrimination
  • Being pregnant
  • Reporting the company’s illegal activity to a third party (whistleblowing)
  • Practicing their religion
  • Providing details about their sexual orientation
  • Refusing to participate in an illegal activity
  • Serving in the U.S. military
  • Requesting overtime or additional benefits

Retaliation is not just wrongful discharge. Many different types of behavior are also considered retaliation. These include demotions, transfers, pay cuts, a loss of benefits or creating a generally hostile work environment.

To help protect your rights as a worker, our lawyers have found that being straightforward, honest and approachable serves our clients best. We recognize that when dealing with employers we still have to come to a workable solution and shake hands when we are finished. Quality, principled representation has been our foundation.
