At The Chandra Law Firm LLC, in Cleveland, Ohio, we dedicate a large portion of our boutique litigation practice's efforts to protecting the rights of workers in certain types of employment-law disputes. Our efforts have led to six- and seven-figure settlements and trial verdicts in favor of our clients.
We have built this record by providing tenacious representation, often devising creative case strategies in the face of overwhelming odds against our clients. We do this while providing personal representation with each of our clients, proving that we are serious when we say "Not just cases. Causes."
Protecting your rights In employment disputes
State and federal laws like Title VII of the Civil Rights Act of 1964 provide you with a host of protections designed to help you work in an environment free from discrimination based on race, sex, gender, national origin, and religtion, as well as sexual harassment.
You should also never face any type of retaliation, including wrongful termination, for blowing the whistle on illegal behavior.
We have a broad range of experience in these types of cases, including those involving the Family and Medical Leave Act, the Employee Retirement Income Security Act, and your ability to freely exercise your First Amendment right to free speech.
We can also counsel you and protect your rights when you have an employee contract with a non-competition agreement. Employers often draft these agreements too broadly to be legally enforceable, but the law can be tricky in this area and careful scrutiny of agreements by lawyers experienced with this area of law is advisable.
Our work has led to our involvement in class-action cases. And in instances where large class actions have fallen apart, attorneys have recommended us to individual clients because of our ability to secure positive results against major corporations, whether at trial or in settlement negotiations.
