House Votes to Reduce Time to File WC Claim


The House of Representatives the week passed HB 27, the workers’ compensation budget, which funds the Bureau of Workers’ Compensation. The bill contained one especially notable amendment for Ohio employers: lowering the time within which a claim must be filed from two years to one year from the date of injury. This would bring Ohio more in line with other states and has been a legislative aim of the OMA for years.  5/18/2017
