Right To Contact Employment Attorney

employment at will mason ohioOhio recognizes that an employee cannot be discharged for consulting an attorney in connection with an employment issue.

Ohio recognizes that firing an employee for consulting an attorney serves as an exception to the "employment-at-will" doctrine--the general rule that employees can be fired with or without cause.  Courts have found that the public policy in favor of an employee consulting an attorney is found in the Ohio Constitution and is a protected right.

An employee's right to have counsel contact his or her employer, while still employed, is a difficult decision for the employee, however knowing that his or her job is protected gives the employee the power to point out improper or illegal employer actions. This right provides the employee with a method for approaching an employer regarding severing a relationship that has “soured”.
