Employment Lawyer Cleveland, Ohio
When workers are employed in Ohio, they have rights and protections under federal and state law. These protections include laws related to how employees are paid, including minimum wage and overtime laws governing the work environment, ensuring a work environment free from harassment and discrimination. It is important for people to be treated with respect, work in an environment free from discrimination and unlawful harassment and be paid correctly while working for Ohio employers. If need be, make sure to seek counsel from a Cleveland employment lawyer.
At The Friedmann Firm, our employment law attorneys understand that not every employment experience has been this way. There are problems that arise in the workplace, both common and easy to solve and complex, much more difficult to navigate. Sometimes employers do not pay their employees properly and deny them overtime pay they are entitled to or there is a hostile work environment that is negatively affecting employees when they are at work.
Some of the common problems that people experience in the workplace are:
- Unpaid wages and overtime;
- Sexual harassment;
- Wrongful termination;
- Hostile work environment;
- Discrimination; and
How to Know If You Have a Hostile Work Environment
These terms are all defined by federal and state law and can sometimes be confusing for employees. For instance, a hostile work environment must be based on a protected class, like disability, race, gender, pregnancy or religion. Bullying, unless based on a protected class, is unfortunately not unlawful. When you are experiencing any of these problems with your employment, it can seriously affect your ability to provide for yourself and your family. If your employer is not paying you properly, or not paying you at all, it can become increasingly difficult to manage your finances and budget for bills, groceries, and save money. A Cleveland employment lawyer may be able to provide concrete solutions for your current situation. What Are My Legal Options if I’m in a Hostile Work Environment in Ohio?
Furthermore, when employees experience sexual harassment, hostile work environment, and/or discrimination, it creates an unproductive and toxic work environment. These environments and practices may cause psychological and emotional damage to employees, which could impact them for the rest of their lives. It is incredibly difficult to face these situations at work, but it’s important to know that your rights as an employee are protected under the law and when an employer violates those laws, they must be held accountable for their actions.

Rachel and the Friedmann Firm were fantastic to work with. The thought of needing an employment lawyer was scary for me, it was confusing and complex. But Rachel listened, asked questions and took time to really understand me and my priorities. I felt calm, supported and excited for the first time in weeks after talking to her!! We worked together to review everything, set expectations and meet my priorities! Thanks Rachel and team for all your work!!!
Rachel Friedmann of the Friedman Firm was my attorney for a very recent legal matter. I would highly recommend Rachel based on her legal knowledge, her honest appraisal of the matter and expected outcomes, her open communication and timely responses to my questions and the matter itself, and her steadfastness in dealing with the opposing counsel until a final agreement was reached.
Rachel and her staff went over and above the call of duty to help me achieve fiscal resolution to my legal issue. She wasn’t always available to talk but was always responsive via text and email when in court out of the office and even on vacation. I feel she earned her percentage cut.
Couldn’t be happier with the representation I received from Jamie Bailey on my civil litigation case. She worked tirelessly to resolve the case and in the end negotiated a fair settlement on my behalf. I would highly recommend her to anyone! Thanks for everything Friedman law firm.
Friedman Firm was a great help in a difficult time in my life. They went above and beyond to get me back on track. Rachel was so good to work with and is extremely knowledgeable about the law and employment rights. Can't thank them enough for all there hard work. Highly recommend them to anyone.
The Friedmann Firm (specifically Pete Friedmann) represented me through what seemed like a never ending employment discrimination suit. The suit was filed just before Covid shut everything down in 2020. Add to that a former employer who refused to admit fault. In spite of all of that, Pete stood resolute in his representation of me and working for the best outcome for me. We ended up settling prior to trial and I was more than satisfied with the results. Pete was always available to answer questions and reassure me throughout this process. I highly recommend The Friedmann Firm!
Pete Friedmann and his firm are fantastic. He represented me for more than a year going through a suit with a previous employer. He walked me through every step of the process and was always quick to respond to any questions I had. My settlement came in and we parted ways with both sides being pleased with the outcome. I highly recommend the Friedmann firm and wouldn’t hesitate to use them again in the future if the need arose. Thank you, Pete!
Rachel and the Friedmann Firm have been amazing to work with. Rachel was very helpful, listened to our concerns and took our case. She communicated well throughout and really worked for us. We were very well represented!
I loved working with The Friedmann Firm. Rachel and Jamie are exceptional lawyers and were diligent in reviewing my case and letting me know of my options. Jamie was extremely thorough and handled even the smallest details of my case with ease. The entire process was seamless and they were always quick to respond to emails and calls. I would definitely recommend working with The Friedmann Firm.
I would recommend Rachel Sabo Friedmann and the Friedmann firm for severance negotiations. Rachel was always available and responsive and made an effort to ensure I was updated on every step of the process. Her diligent efforts produced a prompt resolution and we are very happy with the results!
