    It is unclear from your question whether or not you applied for FMLA leave or if your termination violated the hospital's policies. Even so, you may have other rights under the Americans with Disabilities Act. You should speak to an employment lawyer to determine whether you have any legal claims and, if so, what you can do to pursue them. Feel free to contact my office to schedule a consultation with me.

    In Ohio, you must be able to work to collect unemployment. Based on the facts you have provided, it sounds as if you are unable to work, therefore you will not qualify for unemployment.

    It is unlawful in Ohio for an employer to terminate, refuse to hire, or take other retaliatory action against you for pursuing a workers' compensation claim against them. If you settled your workers' compensation case before you were fired, any claims related to your termination should survive.

    The old answer used to be an automatic yes, provided you are applying the same standards to everyone, and lying on an application is still a valid reason to terminate someone under most circumstances. However, the EEOC has issued new guidelines about whether employees can use conviction questions on applications to eliminate applicants, stating that a blind adherence can implicate race discrimination. The EEOC has been aggressively pursuing these cases. You should consult with a knowledgable...

    It is unlawful to terminate an employee for taking FMLA leave. Not all employees are eligible for FMLA leave, however. Also, if your husband's leave and surgery are disability-related or due to a workers' compensation injury, his employer is not legally allowed to retaliate against him for taking the leave. You need to consult with an experienced employment attorney as soon as possible, because there are important time limitations on some of these potential claims. Elizabeth S. Loring, Esq....

    Your employment situation is clearly complex, although I would generally characterize an employer's failure to compensate you or provide you with work as a termination under most circumstances. You need to consult with an experienced employment attorney well-versed in executive and shareholder compensation who will review any applicable agreements and advise you as to your rights under both employment and business law.
