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:
- Gender Identity
- National Origin
- 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
