  • Resigning from Assignment but not company Ohio

    I was employed by an IT company in Indiana who had more on assignment in Ohio (where I live). After two months the situation in the position I was in became so bad with backstabbing and outright lying that I sent an email that I refused to return to that position effective immediatly.

    The company in Indiana said I had resigned and refused to pay me any of my acrued vacation time since I had not given two weeks notice. I was wondering that since I had not resigned from them but simply refused to return to an intolerable environment, if I had legally resigned from them or if they had let me go due to refusing to continue in my present capacity?

    You resigned.

    Unless the atmosphere was legally hostile, you work where your employer tells you to work.

    You don't get to say, "I am not working at building X every again, find me work somewhere else."
    Not everything that makes you mad, sad or uncomfortable is legally actionable.

    I am not now nor ever was an attorney.

    Any statements I make are based purely upon my personal experiences and research which may or may not be accurate in a court of law.

      You quit. Ohio law does not require the payout of unused vacation.
      Please no private messages about your situation.
