Employment Law

The Employment Law Section provides legal advice and representation regarding an array of employment matters to all state departments, agencies, bureaus, commissions, elected officials, and public colleges and universities. The Section’s attorneys defend clients in state and federal courts against allegations of discrimination on the basis of race, color, sex, religion, age, national origin, and disability. They defend clients against civil service appeals brought before the State Personnel Board of Review and against civil rights complaints brought before the Ohio Civil Rights Commission. The Section’s attorneys also provide advice to clients regarding a variety of state and federal laws, including the Family and Medical Leave Act, the amended Americans with Disabilities Act, and the Fair Labor Standards Act.
