Cleveland Retaliation Lawyers

Although state and federal laws prohibit employers from retaliating against employees who engage in protected activity such as reporting discrimination or illegal activity, taking leave under the Family and Medical Leave Act (FMLA), or filing a workers’ compensation claim, such retaliation still exists in many workplaces today, and can take the form of a wrongful termination, discipline, lost promotions, other employment opportunities, and/or harassment.

At Caryn Groedel & Associates Co., LPA, our attorneys are aggressive advocates for employees throughout Ohio (Pennsylvania, Texas, Virginia, Maryland, Tennessee, and Kansas) who have been subjected to retaliation. With more than 40 years of combined legal experience, our lawyers are zealous advocates for equality and fairness in the workplace.

If you have been discriminated, demoted, terminated, or harassed because you participated in a protected activity, you may be able to bring a retaliation claim against your employer. Examples of protected activities include:

  • Filing a charge of discrimination with the Equal Employment Opportunity Commission (EEOC) or the Ohio Civil Rights Commission (OCRC)
  • Reporting discrimination or harassment to your employer
  • Taking medical or pregnancy leave under the FMLA
  • Exercising your rights under the Americans with Disabilities Act (ADA)
  • Filing a workers’ compensation claim
  • Reporting illegal or dangerous activities to a regulatory agency

We understand that reaching out to an attorney for help with an employment matter may be difficult. When you come to us for legal advice, counsel, or representation, our attorneys will take the time to discuss your concerns and explain all of your legal rights in easy-to-understand terms. From the negotiation table to the courtroom, we will go the extra mile to ensure that your rights are protected and that your employer is held responsible for its actions.
