Customer Question

Unless you can show the termination is due to your disability, or you are on FMLA, which is Family Medical Leave, the law in Ohio allows for the termination.
If you are State or Union employee, such a termination can be litigated as they are protected, if you work for a private employer, and they do try to terminate you, a disability discrimination complaint can be brought.
