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

Q: wrongful termination

I was working for a company named DB Schenker. Their client is Google. As part of the onboarding process, Google sends you email with tasks that need to be completed. I did not receive certain emails needed to get provisional access on site and throughout the buildings. Their reasoning for termination is that I did not complete the compliance tasks completed. Everything I did complete, I took screenshots and sent to my supervisor. How can I complete tasks if I do not receive emails for them to be completed? I have not received a straight forward answer. The only answer I am getting is that Google does not want to send the emails again for the third or fourth time. They are making it seem like it is my fault for not receiving emails. I just want to know if this is even worth fighting. I have done everything on my end.

A: Wrongful termination cases can be complex, and the outcome often depends on the specific facts and circumstances surrounding the termination. In your situation, it appears that the termination was based on your alleged failure to complete compliance tasks due to not receiving necessary emails. If you have evidence, such as screenshots, showing that you completed the tasks or communicated the issues to your supervisor, it strengthens your position. It's essential to gather all relevant documentation, including communication with your supervisor and any proof of completion.

Before pursuing legal action, you may want to explore internal grievance procedures within the company, if available. If the issue remains unresolved, consulting an employment attorney could provide guidance on whether you have grounds for a wrongful termination claim.
