Representation For Public Sector Employees
We are advocates for public sector employees, including state, county, municipal, school, and law enforcement employees. Public sector employment is governed by state statutes and the Ohio Administrative Code. The rules applicable to public sector employees can be confusing and complicated.
We represent public sector employees faced with discrimination, and retaliation, classification issues, wrongful removal, pre-disciplinary hearings, whistleblowing claims, OPERS issues, or who are otherwise being subjected to unlawful conduct.
Success With A Range Of Agencies
We have successfully represented public sector employees in pre-disciplinary and pretermination hearings, in state and Federal Court, and before the State Personnel Board of Review, the State Employment Relations Board, and the Ohio Court of Claims.
Public employees who experience improper discipline, wrongful discharge, discrimination and retaliation must respond promptly to protect their rights, as the opportunity to appeal is often subject to very strict time limitations.
Practical For Help Resolving Workplace Issues
While there are many online resources for public sector employees, including the Equal Employment Opportunity Commission website and the Ohio Civil Rights Commission website, the vast amount of information found on these sites can be frustrating to sort through and is often confusing. We are here to provide practical, cost effective legal advice and guidance.
