That is true, Ohio happens to be a work at will state.
However, if you fire someone without just cause, you're stuck with paying unemployment. I like that fact and I don't. When I had employees there were a couple that I took the time, trouble and aggravation to properly terminate.
If you really own a company, follow the laws and guidelines to a tee, it will come back to bite you if you don't.
Of course I have a sister who was a legal secretary for years and her former employers still give our family great service at a reasonable rate (as far as blood sucking scum can)
Further, I have a brother in-law who is an employment attorney and just the same, great advice came at a great rate.
He's still cut in as I cash out, it was the best deal I ever made.
I pay unemployment insurance for a reason.

I pay workers compensation for a reason.

my point was how delusional Reader is thinking a job is a paid for possession.

I could fire her for bad breath, and nothing would occur but her trip to the unemployment line.

I follow the rules, and refuse to hire problem makers.

So you're a power monger. At least you admit it.

I was always a 'can do m.f.er...' If my crew screwed up, they got my wrath, rarely did they screw up. I did fire a secretary for not ordering trucks to a location in the timeframe I stated. The only one who got unemloyment from me. I didn't have the time to go and testify that she was remiss and failed to follow simple instruction.

What is this, calling all gay folks, calling all gay folks, attack the Catholic Church?

Good grief, go to a psychiatrist and try to figure out why you are a misfit and get some treatment!

Don't any of you work? Play on-line all day, making people dislike you more?

No matter what you say or do, you are still committing sin and that is just the way it is.

My telling you, you are okay, will not make one bit of difference when judgement day arrives. You might as well accept it. Get some help!

Calling on Zoe, calling on Zoe. You're also a sinner. You should worry more about your own sins or it won't make any difference on judgement day.

Frankly, I am not amused by you or this insane thread. I refuse to sugarcoat this topic or the topic of abortion (murder). It is what it is!

It is true, most types of discrimination are difficult to prove.

Doesn't make them legal. And getting away with it doesn't mean that you always will.

Queers discriminate against people without HIV/AIDS or STD, people that don't do elective abortion or sodomy, people that don't admire or consume porn, people that oppose NEA trash art, people that oppose queer curriculum in public schools, and people that oppose their ridiculous national socialist victim cult.

Doesn't make them legal. Getting away with it doesn't mean that they always will.

Can you generalize any other groups as well? Maybe you're getting Santa and the tooth fairy confused. I bet you're even bigoted against the Easter Bunny...

1099 contractors must meet certain narrow criteria (provide their own tools, among other things). Using 1099 as a means to avoid paying Workers Comp and Unemployment Insurance (as you implied), not to mention withholding would be fraud.

If you are an employer, which I highly doubt, you are a fascist if you pay employees as 'contractors'

I've long surmised that you're far too stupid to have built a business on your own. If, indeed you do have one, it's a hand me down that you've about run into the ground.

RS or BS as it should be, every time you get worked up over your falsehoods only enforces the fact that you are not what you claim to be and certainly can't own what you claim, as in that '76 GTO that quickly became a '72 when it was pointed out that '75 was the last year they existed and those weren't true GTO's. they were Venturas with a few modifications, mostly cosmetic.
