Story
Tagline
A provider of proactive employment law services to solve businesses's workforce problems.
Introduction

Jon Hyman—a partner at Cleveland’s Kohrman Jackson & Krantz—provides proactive and results-driven solutions to employers’ workforce problems. Jon concentrates his practice in the representation of companies in employment disputes. His recent victories include defeating certification of a wage and hour class action, obtaining summary judgment in a discrimination and retaliation lawsuit, and obtaining a jury verdict in a theft of trade secrets case. He also serves as an “outside in-house counsel” for businesses that lack an in-house labor & employment attorney, drafting policies and handbooks, 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 Journal commended as one of the top 100 legal blogs three years running, and which LexisNexis named as one of the top 25 Labor & Employment Blogs

Two prominent HR websites also feature Jon as a blogger—Workforce.com and Business Management Daily. Additionally, Jon has joined the editorial advisory board of Workforce Management Magazine.

Jon's 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 parlayed his experience as an early adopter of social media to edit and co-author the book Think Before You Click: Strategies for Managing Social Media in the Workplace

Jon is also an in-demand national speaker on employment law and social media issues. Additionally, he serves as an employment law resource for publications such as the Wall Street Journal, MSNBC.com, Business Insurance Magazine, Crain’s Cleveland Business, and the Cleveland Plain Dealer. He also appeared as a guest on WCPN’s The Sound of Ideas, discussing work place social media issues. You can listen to a recording at www.ideastream.org/soi/entry/42863.

Jon is also a Super Lawyers Ohio Rising Star in Employment Law six out of the last seven years.

Jon also appeared on a November 1999 episode of Who Wants To Be A Millionaire, but sadly lacked the fastest fingers.
