Protect Your Rights after a Wrongful Termination

Losing a job turns your life upside down, no matter how it happens. If your employer’s behavior toward you was unfair or inappropriate, it adds even more pain to a difficult time.

You might think you have no power. But you do.

Ohio is an at-will employment state, which means most employers can fire you without any reason. But they can’t fire you for a bad reason.

Firing you based on mistaken information about your behavior may be illegal under federal and state laws. Firing you based on various forms of discrimination is also illegal.

You can stand up for your rights and win reinstatement to your job or a monetary settlement to correct an injustice and move on with your life.

The Ohio employment wrongful termination lawyers at Horenstein, Nicholson & Blumenthal can make sure you get the full protection of the law. We represent individual workers, not employers.

Steps to Wrongful Termination Claim

If you have a strong feeling you were terminated from your job for a highly suspect reason, you can take these steps to set the situation right:

  1. Negotiate a settlement: An attorney can often negotiate with your employer for a monetary settlement, lost wages, or other compensation or agreements that can be better than what you would get without a lawyer.
  2. File a complaint with regulatory agencies like the federal Equal Employment Opportunity Commission  and the Ohio Civil Rights Commission. Sometimes, you must file complaints like these first before you can sue.
  3. File a lawsuit in state or federal court.

Don’t hesitate to do what it takes to protect your rights in the workforce.

At every step, an experienced employment rights lawyer can help you get the best result so you can move beyond a traumatic job loss.
