If you have been treated unfairly at your place of employment you may have a claim against your employer. The most common cases are those where an employer has discharged an employee without just cause in violation of the employee's contractual or statutory rights. Both State and Federal Law make discrimination on account of race, age, sex, national origin, handicap or disability against the law. The Family Medical Leave Act (FMLA) and Ohio's Workers' Compensation Law also give employees specific rights to be treated fairly. If you beleive you have been treated unfairly you should speak with an attorney. Among the remedies which may be awarded are reinstatement to your position, back pay, restoration of all lost benefits, compensatory damages, punitive damages, and attorney fees and costs.
