  • Discharged for starting school- Ohio

    I was recently discharged from my job and the reason they gave me was that I was going to start school. Now two months before the discharge I spoke with my manager about whether or not I would be able to go to school and work, and he said that would be fine and that we would work around my school schedule. He waited to fire me 2 days before I started school, he did write on the discharge paper that it was due to me starting school. Now I've been out of work for a little over a week and my boss sent me an email asking me to come back to work. I'm now wondering if maybe they realized that this was a potential wrongful termination please.

    Based on what you have said, this is not a wrongful termination.

      I'm don't know why your boss asked you to come back to work but there was
      no wrongful termination.
      Too often we underestimate the power of a touch, a smile, a kind word, a listening ear, an honest compliment, or the smallest act of caring, all of which have the potential to turn a life around. Leo Buscaglia

        Not even close to a wrongful term. Don't know what your boss's motive is, but it's not that.
        The above answer, whatever it is, assumes that no legally binding and enforceable contract or CBA says otherwise. If it does, then the terms of the contract or CBA apply.

          Agreed. Not even close to a wrongful termination.

          I can only assume that the boss decided that they couldn't or didn't want to work around your school schedule and then subsequently had a change of heart - perhaps he realized you are just too good a worker to lose. If you enjoyed the job, you should seriously consider returning.
