In the State of Ohio, most employees are considered "at will," which means employees may be terminated for any reason, with or without cause. However, there are exceptions to Ohio's at will law, such as when there is an unlawful or retaliatory reason for the firing. Also, a claim against an employer may arise if they have breached your employment agreement. If your employment contract is for a certain number of years, or has specific provisions, which are subsequently breached by a premature termination or failure to fulfill a condition, you may have a claim for wrongful termination. Contact one of our experienced Cleveland Wrongful Termination Lawyers today.
In Ohio, one may also present a claim for constructive wrongful termination. A constructive wrongful termination occurs when an employee is not terminated, but quits or resigns because they have effectively been left with no other option. If treatment of an employee, or conditions of the workplace, were so severe that a reasonable person would not continue with such employment, such employee may resign and pursue a claim for constructive wrongful termination and seek lost wages.
