Class & Collective Actions Law Firm Ohio
Columbus, Ohio Collective & Class Action Lawyers
We are experienced class action lawyers in Columbus, Ohio. You may find several class action law firms in Columbus, Ohio but none will work as hard for you as The Friedmann Firm.
An Ohio class action lawsuit is slightly different than an Ohio collective action lawsuit. A class action lawsuit allows an employee to file a lawsuit on behalf of a larger group of similarly situated employees (hundreds and sometimes thousands) who have also been treated unlawfully in the same manner. Chances are, if you have been treated unfairly at work, other employees may have been treated unfairly in the same manner. If this is so, an Ohio class action lawsuit can address the harm caused to you and other employees.
The plaintiff in a class action is usually one person or a small group of people, employed by the same company, suffering the same legal violations. To decide whether to bring a class action lawsuit, our lawyers will investigate how many employees are affected by the unlawful activity, whether those people are subject to the same legal violation and whether the claims of each employee are similar enough to bring a class action lawsuit. If you want to work with one of the best class action law firm in Columbus, Ohio, call us today.
Examples of Ohio Class Actions:
- Company failed to hire African American men and women into certain positions because of race.
- Company discriminated against job applicants for a particular job, based on age, by specifically mandating applicants receive their college degree in a particular year.
- Systematically failing to hire pregnant women into certain management positions or failing to promote pregnant women into management positions.
There are several other examples that are too numerous to describe. If you believe you have been discriminated against or treated unlawfully, contact the class action lawyers in Columbus, Ohio at The Friedmann Firm for help.
Ohio Collective Actions
Collective actions are similar to class actions, in that a single plaintiff or small number of plaintiffs represents the larger, similarly situated class. Ohio Collective actions deal ONLY with wage and hour violations. Typically, collective actions are brought pursuant to federal and state laws, specifically, the Fair Labor Standards Act and Ohio’s minimum wage laws (Article II § 34(a) of the Ohio Constitution and Ohio’s Minimum Fair Wage Standards Act (“OMFWSA”)). Our collective action lawyers in Columbus, Ohio, handle collective actions throughout the state and are well versed in wage and hour laws.

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.

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!

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!
