Jan. 28 & 29th in athens county, oh a level 3 snow emergency was called by the sheriff. Athens county was also declared an Emergency disaster. My Manager told me not to come in to work. I work in an office of a Financial Institution (non esstential). The company nows says my Mgr had no right to make that call and that I would have to use my sick leave days because I did not go to work. My Mgr was forced to go to work that day on a level 3 snow emergency. Can an employer require employees to drive to work in a level 3 snow emergency and when the County has been declared an Emergency disaster because of ice? Who has the authority here...the county government or the employer?
