HCP represents businesses, not-for-profit entities, government entities, and other employers in matters involving employment law, labor disputes, discrimination, harassment, retaliation, workers compensation, benefits, employment contracts, and unfair labor practices. Our attorneys are adept at dealing with all areas of the employment relationship from the beginning of the employment relationship to the conclusion, whether by retirement, termination, or resignation.
Our attorneys have litigated these matters in federal and state courts and administrative agencies throughout Ohio. HCP attorneys provide counseling and litigation services for matters related to various state and federal laws including the Family Medical Leave Act (FMLA), the Consolidated Omnibus Budget Reconciliation Act (COBRA), the Fair Labor Standards Act (FLSA), Title VII of the Civil Rights Act of 1964, and the American with Disabilities Act.
Our experience in litigation allows us to preemptively address workplace disputes. We have conducted or assisted in conducting investigations into employee misconduct and have advised and represented numerous employers in response to investigations by the OCRC, EEOC, and other agencies.
The number of employment laws and regulations has dramatically increased in recent years. HCP attorneys are experienced in developing policies to address these requirements and know how to assist clients in responding to difficult employment situations so as to avoid investigation by regulatory agencies and potential litigation. HCP attorneys routinely advise clients on matters including employee suspensions or terminations, requests for FMLA leave, and employee disability issues. We also draft and review employee handbooks, negotiate employee contracts, and prepare severance agreements.
HCP is committed to providing timely and personal attention to our employer clients whether they are individuals, governments, small businesses, or large corporations.
