Legal Answers
89 Questions Answered

Q. Am I able to collect unemployment if I quit my job due to mental stress and hostile work environment?
A: People who voluntarily quit their jobs usually are not entitled to unemployment benefits. However, an exception to this rule exists if you can prove that a reasonable person would be forced to resign under the conditions of employment you were exposed to. To make this argument, you should list out all the ways in which your work environment became hostile and why you felt compelled to resign.
Q. Boss left a letter on my desk saying I voluntarily resigned in a FB post and effective immediately leave. Was I fired?
A: Ohio is an at-will employment state, meaning you or your employer can terminate the employment relationship at any time and for any reason (as long as the reason isn’t discriminatory). It sounds like you have been fired here based on what happened. As for unemployment, your employer can challenge your receipt of unemployment benefits if it can show it had “just cause” for terminating you. If this happens, you should explain the details surrounding your post and the context in which it was written.
Q. Can my employer ask me to resign or fire me for getting married to a fellow employee even though there's no policy
A: Unfortunately, in at-will employment states, your employer can terminate your employment at any time and for any reason, as long as the reason is not discriminatory (defined as based on your race, sex, age, disability, or religion). While this situation certainly seems unfair, the reason for your termination/forced resignation is not in and of itself unlawful.
