Is being promoted to a position and then terminated for not being the right fit legal?
I was hired as a Fleet Supervisor by my previouse employer but when I started I was told I was going to be the Office Manager and then I was moved to another position without a title. Then he hired a female for sales and moved her into my position and promoted me to Maintenance Manager in our shop. I have no background or experience in this field. After a few months he called my into his office when I arrived for work and told me I was being let go because I was not a good fit for the position. Plus I was having some medical issue before this happened and he said "I think this job is making you sick and I don't want to make you sick". Is this legal and can he do this?1 answer | asked Oct 28, 2010 10:03 AM [EST] in Wrongful discharge | applies to Ohio
One of the exceptions is being terminated because of disability. You mention a "medical issue" but more details are required to determine if your medical issue is a disability. I recommend consultation with an employment lawyer.
