I do realize that I have proof of it. Also, I have been seeing a therapist, and it has come to light that many of my anxiety issues are related to this abuse. I was not the only paralegal he abused either.
The statute of limitations in Ohio for sexual harassment that occurred before April of 2021 is six years, so you can still pursue a claim. The statute of limitations under federal law (Title VII of the 1964 Civil Rights Act) is 300 days.
I had an upcoming scheduled deposition on a case that was a guaranteed win. The plaintiff's attorney knew this and did not want to go to trial or come out of his pocket any further. He has simply been trying to get me to spend enough that settling is the better option.
You should immediately settle for the $2,000 if that offer is still on the table. It will cost you much more than $2,000 to defend the matter at trial. If Plaintiff recovers any amount of a judgment, he will be awarded attorney fees under employment discrimination fee shifting provisions. Most...View More

Ohio does not recognize workers' compensation claims for psychological conditions alone; they must be associated with a physical injury you sustain. Other states recognize these claims but not Ohio. You would have to sustain a physical injury, even a minor one, before the psychological...View More

Ohio and Federal law prohibit employers from terminating employees because of their membership in a protected class...View More
It means the civil service should promote from within, rather than hiring new people into higher level jobs, whenever possible. But the language is pretty loose, so I wouldn't say it creates any kind of absolute right of a lower level employee to be considered to the exclusion of a...View More

I'm assuming that this is a disability discrimination matter. If that is the case then they are likely offering you a different position as a reasonable accommodation for your claimed disability. If you don't take it it is likely that they can terminate you.
