Hi, I made a mistake of trying to leave the store without paying for merchandise. I qualified for a diversion program. I wanted to know, since I will be doing the program, if I apply for a job now, will I have a conviction on my record or am I safe to answer no to the conviction question?
You should not have a conviction on your record if you completed diversion. You can be sure by searching online for your case in the court you were charged. You should also make sure the question asks whether you were "convicted" or "charged" and answer accordingly.

I am sorry to hear about your experience. To directly answer your question, you may consider filing a charge with the Ohio Civil Rights Commission ("OCRC") for a potential violation of Ohio law.

You can't make them give you a copy. Can you take a photo of the document with your phone? If not, take photos of any damage to the trailer that they note on the document and simultaneously make your own written record of the damage they are writing down.
Yes. There are three settings in which that may occur. One, he might just call you up. In which case, it’s entirely within your rights not to talk to him. Two, he could subpoena you for a deposition. In which case you have to sit down an answer his questions or provide legal basis for objecting...Read more »

If you believe you have been discriminated against because of your disability, you would probably benefit from speaking with an employment law attorney before accepting any severance agreement. Some attorneys will offer a free initial consultation.
If your employer did so, it could be FMLA retaliation. You should speak with an employment law attorney as soon as possible to discuss your situation in more detail. Some will offer free initial consultations.
You should contact an employment law attorney as soon as possible. It is not clear if you already left or not, but your employer should have paid you on the date of the soonest pay period. Some attorneys will offer a free initial consultation.

Every case is different, so the best course is to get advice specific to your situation. That said, as a general rule you should evaluate the strength of the evidence for your claim, the amount of damages you could recover and the costs you will incur to recover those damages.
Your employer could potentially be fined, but one thing to consider is if your employer terminated you in retaliation for your report. For that, you should contact an employment law attorney to discuss your situation in more detail.

I have been managing the business for 7 years and would like additional advice on how to legally take ownership of the business if he gets incarcerated. No charges have been filed yet, but I would like to keep my job, as well as keep the jobs of all the other employees who work there.
Technically, nothing. But a business without someone at the helm is seriously endangered. I would suggest you all get together with the owner and a lawyer to ensure the business operations will pass on to someone trusted. Obviously, the boss here needs a lawyer for the criminal side too.
It certainly sounds as though they would have to pay. Employers are generally held to comply with their vacation policies. A review of the entire policy should be conducted to ensure there are no exceptions.
More information would be needed to fully evaluate this. The employer must pay you at least minimum wage of course. If you are protected by a contract with a wage rate, or perhaps a union contract, you might be able to challenge this. However, absent a minimum wage violation or contract...Read more »
