Clyde, OH asked in Employment Discrimination and Employment Law for Ohio

Q: I believe I was wrongfully terminated and wrongfully denied my earned PTO pay upon leaving. Do I have a case?

I was fired from my job because I pointed out due to a FMLA mixup that matrix tried to correct and whirlpool denied. They also refused to pay me my earned PTO time that I have left upon being fired because they said I did not request that I have it paid out. However, I was never told I had to request it the same day I was fired, nor given the chance to request it. Do I have a case?
