You may have a claim under the Family and Medical Leave Act - The FMLA covers employers with at least 50 employees within a 75-mile radius of where the affected employee works. To be covered by the FMLA the employee must have been employed for 12 months and worked 1,250 hours in the prior year.

Other than sexual harassment there is no other type of generic "actionable" (meaning against the law) harassment. Even outright bullying is not actionable harassment - The law only protects an employee from being treated poorly at work if he or she happens to fall into a legally protected category, which, on the federal level, includes race, sex, religion, national origin, age, disability, genetic information, and military status. Depending in what state one happens to work, these classes might expand to include sexual orientation, gender identity, or marital status.See question
My husband's company lowered his salary and raised the commission he would receive on new sales. At the time of this reduction, he had no sales that would have been affected. He is concerned that once he makes a sale or two, which are pending an...
In addition to the posted answer, Ohio has a commission statute that may be of help - RC 1335.11 - which says that "If the contract between the principal and the sales representative is in writing and its terms unambiguously and clearly specify when the commission is due, the terms of the contract shall control the determination." But RC 1335.11 requires the payment of agreed on commission within the time specified or a reasonable time and imposes penalties and attorney fees if not paid. "A principal who fails to comply with division (C) of this section or with any contractual provision concerning timely payment of commissions due upon termination of a contract with a sales representative is liable in a civil action for exemplary damages in an amount not to exceed three times the amount of the commissions owed to the sales representative if the sales representative proves that the principal's failure to comply with division (C) of this section or the contractual provision constituted willful, wanton, or reckless misconduct or bad faith. If a principal receives a written demand for payment of the commissions owed to a sales representative that was sent by certified mail, the failure of the principal to respond to the written demand in writing within twenty days after the principal receives the written demand shall raise a presumption that the principal acted willfully and in bad faith. The prevailing party in an action brought under this section is entitled to reasonable attorney's fees and court costs."See question

I do not believe that you can do anything - the employer can terminate you for no reason or any reason unless it is discriminatory or violate some other law.See question

You should visit with a franchise/commercial lawyer - first, this is a matter of contract (if there is one) and to analyze whether you have any leverage under any franchise or business opportunity law, the entire relationship needs to be explored and explained.See question
On July 9th, I ended up in the ER for a severe anxiety attack and chest pain. They did blood work and decided to admit me because my electrolytes were terrible and at fatal levels. I just got out of the hospital today (7/13) only to find a let...
I do not completely agree with my colleagues who indicate that you may not have any recourse. Under the Family Medical Leave Act you may have a claim and perhaps under the American with Disabilities Act. You may also have claims under Ohio law. But, why not contact the employer first and explain what happened and see if they will reconsider.? If not, visit with a local employment lawyer who may be able to help. Good luck.See question
I live in Ohio but work in PA.... Do I need an attorney from PA?
While most of the protective employment laws are federal, many states have their own employment laws and I would recommend consulting PA counsel.See question
Our employer sent an email that he would fire anyone who worked 24 hours before coming into work at that place of employment.
There is not enough information here to understand the issues ...but in Ohio it is employment at will; meaning you can be terminated for any or no reason at any time, absent any sort of agreement otherwise or unlawful reasons like race/age/gender/military status discrimination or retaliation. Without more facts, it's impossible to tell whether you fit into one of those categories. But if that is the RULE and the employer applies it uniformly then the employer can probably do this - especially if it is for safety reasons.See question
