Medina County is rapidly growing, as more and more people are moving south from the Cleveland area to call Medina their new home. But whether you live and work in Wadsworth or you commute from Brunswick to Cleveland, if you are facing employment discrimination at work, you may not know what to do or where to turn.
You have the right to be free from illegal employment discrimination in Ohio workplaces. Employers may not discriminate against an employee on the basis of race, color, sex, religion, national origin, age, disability, pregnancy, genetic information, or military status. This ban on illegal workplace discrimination includes matters such as hiring, firing, pay, demotions, suspensions, benefits, and any other term or condition of employment.
Not only is it unlawful to intentionally discriminate against employees, the Ohio and federal employment laws also forbid workplace policies and practices that have the unintentional effect of disproportionately hurting employees in a protected class. Similarly, employers may not retaliate against so-called “whistleblowers”—those who report suspected illegal discrimination or harassment in the workplace.
