I think I’ve been wrongfully terminated. What do I need to prove in order to bring a wrongful termination in violation of public policy claim under Ohio law?
Ohio is an at-will employment state. Unfortunately, this means that for the vast majority of employees, their employer may terminate them for any reason or even no reason at all. However, there are exceptions to this general rule. A claim for wrongful termination in violation of public policy arises where the employee is fired under circumstances that violate certain laws put in place to protect public health and safety.
