Settlement Agreement Controls Terms of Consultancy

In the case Bulgrin v. Stow-Munroe Falls City Sch. Dist. Bd. of Educ., 2020-Ohio-3348, 2020 Ohio App. LEXIS 2285, an appellate court found that the trial court did not err in granting a school district’s motion for judgment on the pleadings regarding a teacher’s accrual of sick leave and vacation leave benefits because under the unambiguous provision of the parties’ settlement agreement, the teacher waived the accrual of sick days and the accrual, carry over, or payment for vacation days.

In this case, plaintiff is a former school district treasurer. In a settlement agreement with the school district, the agreement provided that the plaintiff would serve a consultant for a period of time, but precluded the accrual of fringe benefits during the consultancy period.
