Ohio Employer Defense Attorneys

Bonezzi Switzer Polito & Hupp Co. L.P.A. 's Employment Group offers experienced, skilled representation to employers across Ohio. Our employment lawyers have practiced for more than two decades offering litigation representation and advice and counsel to employers of all sizes.

We defend employers in state and federal courts and in administrative agencies against allegations of:

  • Discrimination claims on the basis of age, handicap, disability, race, religion, gender or ethnic background, or veteran status;
  • Wrongful termination;
  • Sexual harassment;
  • Family and Medical Leave Act (FMLA) violations;
  • Fair Labor Standards Act (FLSA) violations;
  • Whistleblower statutory claims;
  • Collective bargaining agreement violations;
  • Workers' compensation claims; and
  • Union grievances;

We regularly appear before trial and appellate courts, as well as federal and state agencies such as the Equal Employment Opportunity Commission, the Ohio Civil Rights Commission, the National Labor Relations Board, the Wage and Hour Division of the Department of Labor, the Occupational Safety and Health Administration, the Department of Justice, the Industrial Commission of Ohio, the Ohio Unemployment Compensation Review Commission and the Ohio Bureau of Workers' Compensation.

Employment claims, perhaps more so than other areas of law, are fact-intensive, requiring thorough investigation to fully develop all facts and circumstances which impact upon the allegations set forth by the employee. Once we have established the facts, we pursue all avenues to protect the employer's interests, either through litigation, negotiation or alternative dispute resolution. We've obtained many case dismissals through summary judgment and successful verdicts at trial.
