Welcome to OELASmart

The purpose of the Ohio Employment Lawyers Association (OELA) is to promote the interests of individual employees and to assist the lawyers who represent them. OELA members are attorneys who dedicate 70% or more of their employment practice to representing people, not companies. OELA attorneys vindicate employee rights, such as discrimination, sexual harassment and wrongful discharge. OELA is a state affiliate of the National Employment Lawyers Association ("NELA").

OELASmart.net is OELA's website. For the public, OELASmart has an Employment Rights Library, with links on the left side of this page. For OELA Members, OELASmart.net provides a Listserve, a document bank, case summaries, employment law articles and other resources. To become a Member, join us. If you have any questions about OELASmart or need assistance using its resources, contact Neil Klingshirn.

The information and services provided by the Ohio Employment Lawyers Association on this web site are not intended to be relied upon as legal advice, but are provided strictly for information and education purposes. Employment law is an especially complicated area and the facts of any particular employment situation will have an impact upon how the law is applied to that situation. If you have questions or require legal advice, then you should retain or talk to an attorney for that purpose. There are OELA members throughout the State of Ohio who are more than willing to sit down with you to discuss your particular situation.
