In State ex rel. Booth v. Indus. Comm., 2013-Ohio-5392, a claimant with an allowed workers’ compensation claim was terminated for violating a written work rule prohibiting employees from engaging in direct competition with the employer, which sold cable services. While on restricted duty, the claimant offered to sell cable to a former employee of the company. The court of appeals found the claimant’s conduct violated the company’s written policy. Therefore, the claimant’s termination constituted a voluntarily abandonment from employment, which precluded compensation. Read the full decision here.
