In the case of Weiler v. Technipower, Inc., 2023-Ohio-465, an appellate court held that an applicant does not have a right to be employed by a potential staffing agency simply because the staffing agency reached out to the applicant as to a possible position of employment with an unnamed client and then stopped communicating with the applicant.
In this case, the applicant argued that the applicant had a right to be employed by a staffing agency as the staffing agency reached out to the applicant as to a possible position of employment with an unnamed client and the applicant expressed an interest, but the staffing agency then stopped communicating with the applicant. In response, the staffing agency argued that the staffing agency was not prohibiting the applicant from obtaining or maintaining employment, the applicant was never interviewed or offered the position, and the applicant was never employed by either the staffing agency or its unnamed client. The appellate court agreed with the staffing agency.
In support of its decision, the appellate court explained that the applicant simply failed to present any evidence of an actual promise of employment by the staffing agency.
