Absent an employment contract or a collective bargaining agreement, employees in Ohio are considered to be employed at will. This means that either the employer or the employee can end the employment relationship at any time. However, an employer is preceded from terminating an employee based on age, sex, race, national origin, handicap/disability as well as matters in violation of the public policy of the State of Ohio. The area of public policy wrongful discharge is a constantly changing and evolving area of the law.
