Employment Law

The legal rights of working people in America have been evolving and changing since the Industrial Revolution. While current federal and state employment laws protect workers from issues like discrimination, unsafe conditions and wrongful termination, the truth is that the system is far from perfect. Abuses and misconduct still occur.

When going to court on an Ohio employment law case, people in the cities and towns like Lorain, Elyria and Westlake should know they have a strong advocate in Miraldi & Barrett, Co. With a 60-year track record of fighting for the rights of clients, our attorneys combine the skilled legal insight of a big city law firm with the personal attention expected of a locally-owned business.

Miraldi & Barrett Co. handles a wide variety of Ohio employment law cases, including but not limited to:

Northern Ohio is a diverse working environment that includes heavy industry like steel mills, commercial trucking and railroads as well as retail centers like those found in downtown Lakewood and Lorain as well as recreational hubs of areas like Sandusky.

No matter where you work, or the color of your collar, you need an attorney who not only understands the specific laws that govern your industry but will also listen and provide personalized attention in your situation.

In Ohio, generally an employer does not need a reason to discharge an employee.  This is called the "employment at will" doctrine.  However, there are many exceptions that prevent the employer from unjustly terminating an employee.  If one of the exceptions applies, a terminated employee may have a remedy at law to recover damages.  Federal and state statutes protect employees from being fired because of race, sex, age or disability.  Employees may also be protected if they can establish that the termination was in retaliation for taking advantage of the Federal Medical Leave Act or being a "whistle blower."  At Miraldi & Barrett Co., we have the experience and legal knowledge to handle all your employment law needs.

With an emphasis on personal attention, we get results. Call 1 800 589 3023 to discuss your options.
