In Ohio, if an employer lays off an employee the employee is typically allowed to apply for and collect unemployment benefits if the employee has fulfilled certain requirements. An employee is also typically entitled unemployment benefits if the employee is terminated without what is defined by Ohio Law as "just cause," or if they quit with "just cause."
Sometimes, however, an employer will fire an employee unjustly and fight their employee's application for unemployment. Mr. McDermott typically gets involved in an unemployment benefits battle after the initial application is denied. Note that there are strict timelines that must be adhered to when appealing an unemployment benefits denial.
