7 Questions Answered

Q. i felt i was wrongfuly terminated from my job on march 18 2015. i dont know who to turn to for help. please help
A: Why were you terminated?
Q. I was fired from a job (OH). After, I applied for unemployment, and it was deemed I was fired without just cause.
A: Why were you terminated? The "just cause" standard is just the standard to receive Unemployment Compensation. It typically has no bearing on whether there is a legal violation.
Q. Is an employer required to pay me for Unused accrued vacation time?
A: It depends on the employer's policy. If the employer has a written policy that says they will pay out accrued vacation time upon termination or resignation, you should be paid. In the absence of that, the employer does not have to pay you the accrued vacation time.
Q. I have been off of work for nearly 3 weeks for medical reasons. My employer is now letting me go? Can they do that?
A: If you are not eligible for FMLA leave, which it sounds like you are not because you've only been there less than 90 days, your employer can likely let you go if you have absences, even if you have a doctor's note. FMLA protects your job for up to 12 weeks. I'd recommend going back when you feel better, even if it means repeating the 90-day probationary period.
Q. I haven't received payment and payday was last week im thinking about pursuing in legal matters what should i do
A: In Ohio, your employer has 30 days to pay you. If you still have not received payment after 30 days, you may want to call and employment attorney or pursue it in small claims court.
Q. Can my job let me go even the I have Dr excuses and tried coming back in sick n got let go is that legal
A: Were you eligible for FMLA?
Q. Is there a type of leave I can apply for? I've been at my new job for three months and have a chronic illness.
A: How long have you been working for the company and are you eligible for FMLA?
