The Legal Workplace Blog
Jonathan Hyman—a partner at Cleveland’s Kohrman Jackson & Krantz—provides proactive and results-driven solutions to employers’ workforce problems. Jon concentrates his practice on the representation of companies in employment disputes. His recent victories include defeating certification of a wage-and-hour class action and obtaining summary judgment in a discrimination and retaliation lawsuit. He also serves as an “outside in-house counsel” for businesses that lack an in-house labor and employment attorney, drafting policies, auditing HR practices and procedures, and advising companies on day-to-day HR issues.
Jon is the author of the nationally recognized and award winning Ohio Employer’s Law Blog, which the ABA has commended as one of the top 100 legal blogs three years running, and which LexisNexis has honored as one of the top Labor & Employment blogs. His most recent book, The Employer Bill of Rights: A Manager’s Guide to Workplace Law is a practical handbook designed to help business owners and managers navigate the ever-changing maze of labor and employment laws, rules and regulations. Jon also co-authored Think Before You Click: Strategies for Managing Social Media in the Workplace.
Jon has been a Super Lawyers Ohio Rising Star in the area of Employment Law six out of the last seven years. Lastly, Jon appeared on a November 1999 episode of Who Wants to be a Millionaire, but, sadly, lacked the fastest fingers.
