After listening to a long list of opposition testimony, the House Insurance Committee passed House Bill 380, which would block illegal aliens from receiving benefits through Ohio workers’ compensation system.
A similar provision was included in the House passed version of the Bureau of Workers’ Compensation (BWC) budget bill earlier this year. That provision was stripped from the bill during Senate deliberations.
House Bill 380 contains an amendment which would ensure that employers who act ethically and legally during the hiring process would not be subject to new litigation claims. 11/30/2018
