Ohio Sick Leave: What you need to know

There is no Ohio law that requires private sector employers to provide employees with paid or unpaid sick leave, although many employers do provide it as an important employee benefit.

Thus, employers should regularly review policy statements made in handbooks or other written materials to ensure that they accurately reflect current policies. If not, they should be changed, and employees should be notified of the changes.
