Can a company auto-terminate you for not working, when they wouldn't approve the surgery to get off worker's comp until now?

1 Answers. Asked on Apr 24th, 2017 on Wrongful Termination - Ohio
More details to this question:
After an injury at work, the company would not approve the surgery needed until almost 2 years after the incident. After 1 year, they changed the work status to "Leave of absence" without employee approval. Now the surgery was finally approved, and return to work is within 6 months (after therapy). However, now they auto-terminated employment for not being on the schedule for 180 days, which will cancel out all service-related benefits upon return. Is this legal? Do we have any recourse?

You need to contact an Ohio employment attorney immediately to discuss your rights. You may very well have a legal claim.
