  • Ohio - Right to hear call when fired? Ohio

    My wife was just fired for not following call procedure at her job. The company is saying she didn't ask for the customer's last name, but she insists that she did. They wouldn't let her listen to the recording or provide any documentation other than the word of her manager. Is there any recourse to get them to produce this recording or otherwise show what they have to us in the state of Ohio? I find this a little coincidental to happen 3-5 days after another job she was interviewing for had called to verify employment.

    *PLEASE NOTE THAT THIS IS NOT LEGAL ADVICE*

    There is no specific Ohio law or regulation that would require your wife's employer to provide her with the evidence that the employer relied upon to terminate her employment. She could certainly make a request the information, however the employer could refuse to give it to her.

    If your wife files for unemployment and the employer challenges her application, she might be able to get a copy of the information if the employer chooses to provide it as evidence to support its challenge of her unemployment benefits. Barring your wife filing a lawsuit for wrongful termination (and I am certainly not stating whether your wife would be successful in any such suit based upon the information that you provided) your wife would be able to get a copy of the information through the discovery process.

      Based on the information in your post, I see no illegal/wrongful termination. It would only have been an illegal termination if she had been terminated for a reason prohibited by law (ie age, religion, gender). It was not illegal to terminate her w/o documentation. It would also have not been illegal to terminate her due to interviewing for another job.
