Ohio At-Will Employment

Ohio is an at-will employment state, which means that employers can end a working relationship at any time for any reason, or for no reason. That said, there are situations in which the firing of an employee would be considered a violation of the employee's rights. Employers cannot fire employees for discriminatory reasons, such as because of the person's race, age, religion, sexual orientation, marital status or disability. Employers also may not fire a person because of military service or for filing Workers' Compensation claims. Employees cannot be fired for certain whistleblowing activities, for taking certain medical leaves or in retaliation for filing an Occupational Safety & Health Administration complaint.

Other exceptions to employment at will include employees who have a written contract, employees who work under a union contract or certain government employees.

It is illegal for employers in Ohio to retaliate against employees— including firing them, taking disciplinary action, refusing to promote or reassigning an employee— for making an official complaint about discrimination, violations of health or safety laws or reporting an employer for engaging in illegal activities.
