Employees are afforded protections under a number of federal and state anti-discrimination and retaliation statutes. An employer may not legally make hiring, firing, or promotion decisions, or any other decision that impacts the terms and conditions of employment, on the basis of certain protected classes, like an employee’s gender, race, age, national origin, disability, or religion. Similarly, an employer may not retaliate against an employee who has complained about mistreatment related to these protected classes. The attorneys at Sobel, Wade & Mapley have experience representing clients in cases brought pursuant to Title VII of the Civil Rights Act of 1964, the Americans with Disabilities Act, the Age Discrimination in Employment Act, as well as Ohio’s state law counterparts.
