Cincinnati Employment Law Attorneys

Employment law is the area of law that governs the employer-employee relationship. This area is made up of both state and federal laws, as well as local laws in some instances. It includes many different subjects with the dual goal of protecting worker’s rights and also allowing employers to run their businesses as they see fit. Some popular examples of laws applicable to the employment arena are the Civil Rights Acts of 1964 that prevents discrimination based on a person’s race, color, religion, gender, or national origin, and the Fair Labor Standards Act which establishes the federal minimum hourly wage and overtime compensation requirements. Other areas of employment law include wrongful termination, family & medical leave, and reasonable accommodation for employees with disabilities.
