Employment Discrimination

Discrimination in the Workplace

Getting fired is an awful experience. It is financially and emotionally devastating. It’s one of life’s worst moments.

It’s natural to be angry. It’s natural to be confused 

Wanting to sue your ex-employer is a perfectly understandable reaction.

Suing An Employer in Ohio

Before moving ahead with litigation, there are a few things every worker should know:

  1. Ohio is an ‘at-will employment’ state. Employees who do not have contracts, work in government, or are covered under collective bargaining agreements are considered at-will employees.
  2. At-will employees  can be fired for… anything. At any time.
  3. A company can offer someone a position, have them relocate, fire them on their first day, and have no liability.
  4. Employers don’t need to give a reason or even a warning. The ‘boss’ has a bad day, Ohio State loses to Michigan, an unemployed brother-in-law suddenly needs a job – it doesn’t matter.  

If it seems that your employer can terminate you on a whim it’s because they can… unless it violates state and/or federal law.  

Firing someone because of race, gender, age, disability, sexual orientation, pregnancy, nationality, or religion is discrimination.  

Discrimination and Wrongful Termination

Discrimination is illegal. If you have been terminated because of discrimination, you have been illegally, wrongfully terminated.
