In written testimony this week to the House Economic Development, Commerce, and Labor Committee, OMA’s Rob Brundrett said: ” … Ohio is at a competitive disadvantage with employment discrimination laws that are significantly different than federal laws and the laws of many other states. These differences between the state and federal laws create an administrative burden for Ohio’s manufacturers and other Ohio employers. Bringing Ohio’s laws in line with their federal counterparts creates a more predictable and consistent system for employers and employees alike, and does not disrupt individuals’ avenues to assert discrimination violations.
The bill had its second hearing this week. 2/23/2017
