House Introduces Group Self-Insurance Bill

Last week Rep. Mike Henne (R-Clayton) introduced yet another workers’ compensation bill, this time legislation (HB 459) that would permit groups of employers to be granted self-insurance status for the purposes of Ohio’s workers’ compensation laws.

While big on ambition the bill is short on details. The bill kicks the can to the Bureau of Workers’ Compensation to develop how the program would work.

OMA will report on developments of this bill and all matters safety and workers’ compensation important to manufacturers at its upcoming Safety & Workers’ Compensation Committee meeting on February 13. Register here1/18/2018
