Is a PRN employee working full time hours for over a year entitled to receive benefits in Ohio?

I am a PRN employee working 30-40hrs per week for
nearly the last two years except maternity leave and
a period of slow work. When I ask my immediate
supervisor to be made full time, declining insurance,
only seeking PTO, I am told no. I didnt know if I had
any legal ground to stand on or if Im out of luck.

There is no entitlement to benefits: benefits (e.g. health insurance; sick or vacation days; etc.) are not required by law. An employer is free to decide what types or categlories or employees get benefits, and may legally opt to treat PRN employees differently than full-time employees.
