As an employment lawyer representing employees throughout Ohio and New York, I believe that successful legal outcomes starts with effective attorney-client communication. I represent clients a wide range of matters, including wage and hour claims under the Fair Labor Standards Act (FLSA) and state minimum wage and overtime law; Family and Medical Leave Act (FMLA) violations; Americans with Disabilities Act (ADA) violations; USERRA violations; Title VII discrimination and retaliation claims; sexual harassment; hostile work environment; and severance and employment contract reviews and negotiations. I also provide representation in jury trials, arbitrations, and mediations in front of the Equal Employment Opportunity Commission.

I grew up in Columbus, Ohio and earned my undergraduate degree from The Ohio State University. Go Bucks! I completed my J.D., cum laude, from Capital University Law School where I was Managing Editor on the Capital University Law Review. While in law school I also served as a judicial extern for the Honorable Judge Michael H. Watson of the Southern District of Ohio and the Honorable Jeffery S. Sutton, Chief Justice of the Court of Appeals for the Sixth Circuit.

Legal Answers
Q. Was offered relocation from my existing job. The letter Effective Date was 8-15-21. The letter outlined new role and
A: You should have the relocation agreement reviewed by an attorney. Sometimes employment agreements with incorporate other documents or company policies into the agreement by reference. Whether the general relocation policy is superseded by the relocation agreement you signed later is not something that could be determined without reviewing the specific terms of the relocation agreement.
Q. Can my boss take out break time?
A: Generally, under federal and state wage and hour laws your employer is not required to compensate you for bona fide meal periods lasting 20 minutes or more. However, if you work during your meal break the meal break is no longer bona fide.

You should call an employment attorney to discuss your situation and whether the automatically deducted (but worked) time is unpaid overtime or minimum wages that require compensation.
Q. Do i have to clock out for lunch if i work through it?
A: You should call an attorney to discuss your situation. Under the Fair Labor Standards Act employers are not required to pay employees for "bona fide" lunch breaks that last 20 minutes or more. However, if you are required to keep working after you clock out for lunch, the lunch break is no longer "bona fide" and you may need to be compensated for that time.
