Mary McGowan, M.D. v. Medpace, Inc., Case No. 2015-1756
First District Court of Appeals (Hamilton County)
- For a law to be the basis for a wrongful termination against public policy claim, must that law impose a duty on an employee to report a violation, expressly prohibit retaliation for reporting a violation, or protect public health and safety?
- Do Ohio's insurance fraud statute and the federal Health Insurance Portability and Accountability Act (HIPAA) set clear public policy that can be the basis of a wrongful discharge claim if an employee reports a violation and is terminated?
