Columbus Wrongful Termination Lawyer

Columbus is the capital of Ohio, an at-will employment state. At-will employment means your employer can fire, demote, or punish an employee for almost any reason (or no reason at all), as long as the reason for taking one of these actions is not illegal.

 

If the underlying reason for being terminated from your job is illegal, then you have a case for a wrongful termination lawsuit.

 

Wrongful Termination Examples

Experiencing Discrimination

If you complained about experiencing discrimination (for age, race, national origin, sex, religion, disability, etc.) and were terminated as a result of that complaint or were terminated due to discrimination, it is likely you were terminated wrongfully.

 

Requesting a Reasonable Accommodation

If you requested a reasonable accommodation for your disability and were subsequently disciplined, your termination could be wrongful.

 

Taking Medical Leave

Employers who punish employees for taking medical leave for a serious health condition may be liable for a wrongful termination lawsuit.

 

Questioning Pay

If you were fired after asking questions about your employer’s failure to pay overtime, you may have experienced wrongful termination.

 

Reporting OSHA Violations

Punishing or terminating employees for reporting health and safety hazards is yet another form of wrongful termination.

 

Reporting Sexual Harassment

If you experienced sexual harassment at work, spoke up about it, and were disciplined or fired for doing so, your termination may be wrongful.
