What is wrongful termination?

Even though Ohio is an at-will employment state, employers do not have a free pass to violate your legal rights. Employers are obligated to follow the state and federal employment laws.

  • Wrongful termination refers to a firing that violates state or federal employment laws. A wrongful termination can also occur if it implicates an important public policy.  In general, employers can be held responsible if they terminated you for the following unlawful reasons:
  • Being a member of a protected class, which includes race, gender, national origin, religion, age, military status, or disability, among others
  • Engaging in protected activity, such as taking leave under the Family Medical Leave Act, filing a Workers' Compensation claim, reporting safety violations or fraudulent business practices, or refusing to engage in illegal activity
  • In retaliation for reporting discriminatory behavior or engaging in other protected activities

Specifically, many wrongful termination cases involve:

  • Discrimination on the basis of:
    • Race
    • Gender
    • Gender Identity
    • Pregnancy
    • National Origin
    • Age
    • Religion
    • Disability
    • Military status
  • Employees on medical leave
  • Employees who have medical restrictions
  • Employees on maternity leave
  • Employees deployed for military service
  • Retaliation against employees who filed a complaint against the employer
  • Retaliation against employees who filed for workers' compensation after an injury
