Ohio’s Business Immunity Bill Hangs in the Balance

Negotiations remain unresolved over a pair of bills (House Bill 606 and Senate Bill 308) that would provide businesses and health care professionals with temporary legal protections during COVID-19. As of late Thursday afternoon, lawmakers had not yet agreed to strip a harmful worker’s compensation provision from pending legislation. As a result, the timely passage of a final immunity package is uncertain. There is still time to take action. 6/11/2020
