Have an Unemployment Claim in Cleveland, Columbus, Akron, Cincinnati, Dayton, Toledo, or Youngstown? What is Misconduct Under Ohio Unemployment Law?

If You Tried Your Best, Mere Alleged Poor Performance
is NOT Disqualifying
Although I am unable to provide legal advice on Ohio law, I can pass along some basic legal principles I gleaned from researching the relevant law.  This task is made easier because my research has disclosed that unemployment claims in Ohio are rather similar to those in Pennsylvania in a number of important respects. For example, a claimant can be denied benefits only if he/she was terminated "for just cause" (i.e. misconduct). Moreover, if you were terminated due to alleged poor performance, you are entitled to received Unemployment Benefits under Ohio law.

A Boss Like This Could Justify Quit

 Under Ohio law, you may be entitled to Ohio Unemployment Benefits even if you quit your job if you had good reason to do so. For example, suffering a  significant reduction in hours or compensation through no fault of your own, being subjected to an unduly harsh/unsafe work environment, etc.

Tele-Hearing is Key

Ohio decides unemployment claims via a) an administrative claim process; b) a right to appeal from the administrative decision; and, most importantly, c) a Telephone Hearing before a Hearing Officer. Just as in Pennsylvania, having an attorney represent you at this all-important Hearing may be determinative to the outcome of your claim.

Finally, Unemployment Hearings in Ohio, like those in Pennsylvania, often yield sworn testimony from employer witnesses.  This testimony can later be used to your great advantage during the prosecution of claims for illegal discrimination, retaliation, wrongful termination, etc.  An experienced attorney is essential to skillfully executing such a strategy.  Our Cleveland attorney frequently prosecutes such claims, and will be able to skillfully navigate you through any litigation process as needed.
