Many government agencies are mandated to enforce laws applicable to the workplace, including the Equal Employment Opportunity Commission (“EEOC”), the Department of Labor (“DOL”), the Occupational Safety and Health Administration (OSHA), the National Labor Relations Board (“NLRB”), the Ohio Civil Rights Commission (“OCRC”), and the Ohio Department of Commerce (wage and hour department). These agencies will accept complaints and investigate alleged violations of the laws these agencies are responsible to enforce. If you are contacted by one of these agencies, retaining experienced legal counsel who know the applicable regulations, how these investigations are conducted, and how to properly respond is critical to avoiding adverse findings and the potential negative consequences an investigation may have on your business.
