Question wrongfully fired for theft

I clean houses and recently me and my partner were fired for stealing 2 rolls of quarters from a clients house. I agreed to a lie detector test and my employer said she would not pay for it. She said she is firing us both because neither of us will fess up.I know I didn't take them. Can she fire both or even one of us with no proof of who did it. The client swares they were there that morning.

You could probably call the company you work for and find out the company rules on firings. They may not actually need to prove anything. And it will basically come down to your word against theirs, which in the end, you will lose.

Ohio is an at will state. Meaning employers do not have to give a reason to terminate their relationship with you. They can do it on suspicion.

Though Ohio is an at will state, you could probably seek legal council and win in litigation if you wanted to go that route. If the company or client has no evidence then a decent lawyer can make something happen. The question would be if the outcome would be worth the litigation.

There are plenty of those kinds of jobs in Columbus. Just take the loss and mover on. You could be working within a month, doing the same work if you apply at enough places.
