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

Q: If you are working & on SSDI is an employer required to schedule IAW SSDI hours so you don't make too much & lose SSDI?

I work for a big box home improvement retailer. I have asked them repeatedly not to schedule me past 1260/mo income. I have previously notified SSDI of their actions & provided work with a doctor's note. I have repeatedly spoken to several managers past 3 months & they continue to overschedule me because they don't have enough coverage. Wondering if they can fire me since my Manager angrily put me as "call offs" the rest of January. 3 call offs is grounds for termination. Is this legal? P.S. Worked there over 9.5 years.

A: You are probably an "at will" employee and subject to termination at any time, without the requirement of "good cause" however, you cannot be terminated for an illegal reason. You should consult directly with a local employee rights attorney about your situation.
