Employers have reported receiving notice of a workers’ compensation class action law suit filed in Cuyahoga County.  The case known as San Allen vs. Stephen Buehrer alleges that the BWC charged excessive workers’ compensation premium rates to non-group rated employers for the policy years 2001 to 2008.

According to OMA counsel, Tom Sant of Bricker & Eckler LLP, “The suit has lain dormant for several years while the Courts determined whether it should be granted class action status.  Having received that status the case is moving forward with the letter being the first indicator of that.”
