Right to Vote without Employer Interference or Threat of Discharge
Ohio's Right to Vote law states:
No employer, his officer or agent, shall
- discharge or threaten to discharge an elector for taking a reasonable amount of time to vote on election day; or
- require or order an elector to accompany him to a
voting place upon such day; or
- refuse to permit such elector to serve
as an election official on any registration or election day; or
- indirectly use any force or restraint or threaten to inflict any
injury, harm, or loss;
- or in any other manner practice intimidation in order to induce or compel such person to vote or refrain from voting for or against any person or question or issue submitted to the voters.
- Ohio Revised Code Section 3599.06.
