Understand Your Rights Regarding Termination
When we approach a wrongful termination case, we evaluate a number of factors. We approach each case with a fresh look. Employment is either at-will or by contract. With at-will employment, either the employer or the employee may end employment at any time for any reason or no reason. With contract employment, the terms of the contract govern how an employee may leave or be let go.
However, it is important to note that, under no circumstances, may an employer terminate employment for a discriminatory reason. State and federal laws prohibit discrimination on a number of bases.
In Ohio, it is illegal to discriminate based on race, color, religion, sex, military status, national origin, disability, age or ancestry.
Federal law prohibits discrimination based on race, color, religion, sex, national origin, disability, pregnancy or age.
One of our attorneys can evaluate your case to determine if you were wrongfully terminated.
Other Types Of Wrongful Termination
If you have an employment contract, you may have a claim for violation of that contract. You may also have a claim for wrongful termination if you are fired for refusing to do an illegal act, as a whistleblower, as retaliation for a legal act, for taking legally protected time off or if the employer simply disregards their employment policy in implementing termination.
