Warning signs your job is in jeopardy
Every case is different. But often, there are warning signs that your supervisor or boss wants to fire you. This is especially true if you recently filed a complaint at work about unsafe working conditions, discrimination or harassment. Some of the warning signs that you're being targeted and could lose your job include:
- Sudden change in work shift to a difficult time (especially if you have child care issues)
- Negative performance reviews for the first time in your career
- Negative comments by a supervisor or boss about your job performance
- Work normally assigned to you is assigned to someone else
- Your supervisor or boss stops talking to you
- You're no longer invited to work meetings you normally attend
- Being passed over for promotion
- Being denied a raise
Trust your instincts. If something doesn't feel right, talk to an attorney at our law firm. We can explain all the legal options available to you.
How we can help you
What makes these cases so complicated is your supervisor or boss will likely deny that they're retaliating against you. Instead, they'll likely use vague language about how they're simply not happy with your job performance anymore or that the company wants to go in a different direction.
While it's true that Ohio is an at-will employment state - meaning your employer can terminate you with or without cause at any time - your employer cannot terminate you for an unlawful reason. You do have rights as a worker. This is especially true if you filed a complaint at your company about harassment, discrimination, unsafe working conditions or not being paid for hours you worked. Filing such a complaint qualifies as a protected activity. And under Ohio law, your employer cannot fire you in retaliation for filing such a complaint, regardless of whether you are an at-will employee.
This might sound straightforward. But wrongful termination cases are almost always contentious. That's why it's critical that you talk to a wrongful termination lawyer at our law firm as soon as possible. We can explain the best strategies for addressing your concerns.
