Another COVID-19 Workers’ Compensation Bill Introduced

State Rep. Tom Patton (R-Strongsville) has proposed a new legislation to expand Ohio’s workers’ compensation coverage by granting food packaging, food processing, and grocery store employees benefits if they contract COVID19 while at their place of employment.

The Patton bill comes on the heels of the recent introduction of other legislation that would expand workers’ compensation benefits to employees who are infected by the virus. 4/9/2020
