Employment and Labor Law
Employment laws regulate the relationship between an employer and employee and the contracts of employment. Employment law issues include collective bargaining; protection against sexual harassment and discrimination in the place of work on the basis of age, sex, race, religion, color, disability, or national origin; wages; hours of work; occupational safety; workers’ compensation; the terms and conditions of employment; holiday entitlements; health insurance benefits; and protection of an employee’s rights. Both federal and state laws aim at protecting the rights of employees.
Green & Green Lawyers has a solid history of dealing with both the employee and employer sides of employment issues, both before and after suit is filed. Whether you are an individual who believes your rights have been violated, a victim of discrimination, an employer seeking to train employees or investigate claims or a person or business who needs your rights protected in administrative proceedings, court, arbitration or mediation, Green & Green can provide its resources to you.
The lawyers at Green & Green also have vast experience in the labor arena. Our experience includes arbitrations, fact-finding, civil service hearings, drafting charges and specifications and labor negotiations. The State Employment Relations Board (“SERB”), the American Arbitration Association (“AAA”) and the Ohio Civil Rights Commission (“OCRC”) are agencies that we work with on a routine basis. Our experience allows us to prepare the case from the beginning, including drafting the charges for policy violations, or defending the employer at an arbitration or resolving the matter at mediation in efforts to resolve a matter pre-litigation or as part of the alternative dispute resolution (“ADR”) process.
