Many workers feel oppressed by their employers. For some, the situation goes beyond an unpleasant work environment and into a violation of their rights as an employee. Ohio and federal laws prohibit you from being terminated because of your race, gender, religion, national origin, physical or mental disability, or age. You also have the right to work in an environment free from sexual harassment, and cannot be retaliated against or terminated for reporting misconduct or the illegal activities of others. Biases and prejudices sadly still exist, and companies do not always take the proper steps to protect the rights of their employees. If you find yourself in a situation like this, the employment lawyers at Rittgers & Rittgers are here to help. Call us today at 513-932-2115.
