Vacation, or pay during time off, is an employer created benefit. What the employer creates the employer can take away, so yes, your employer can provide vacation and require you to use it when you are sick. That might turn it into sick pay, but the concept for sick pay is the same. A private Ohio employer does not have to provide any paid time, whether for vacation, sick time, funeral leave or the like.

In Ohio, an employer with fewer than 50 employees has an obligation to provide a reasonable amount of unpaid time off for maternity leave, but that's about it.
