I FIGHT FOR FREEDOM AND FUTURES
The Republican (read rich white) majority on the Ohio Supreme Court made the bringing of a wrongful employment termination lawsuit even more difficult in February 2020. Regardless, there are classes of workers that are protected from the disguised veil of "employer discretion." These include older employees (the age keeps changing) and employees of certain ethnic, gender, and religious groups, and workers with a physical or mental disability.
Employers can also be held liable for terminating an employee who complains of sexual or physical harassment, or who is injured on the job and files a Workers Comp claim. Even if not terminated, an employee who is subjected to sexual, verbal or physical harassment may also have a legal claim.
Some employees have employment contracts, either specifically in writing or implied by the employer or a superior's statements or actions. Either way if you are terminated for a "non-cause" reason (example of "for-cause" would be if you stole from your employer) you may be entitled to money damages and/or restoration of your employment, if feasible.
If you feel you have been wrongfully terminated and are in one of the protected classes, or feel that you have been retaliated against by your employer for any reason, call me and we will discuss your rights under both Ohio and Federal law.
