OAJ SIDEBAR

Illegal immigrants denied workers’ comp 
Several changes were made to the BWC budget bill before it passed the House.  Illegal aliens would be prohibited from receiving workers comp benefits and a rebuttal to the new fire-fighter cancer presumption was added.  The bill includes several positive amendments that OAJ proposed, but it also contains the reduction in the statute of limitations from two years to one that OAJ opposes.  HB 28 has been referred to the Senate Transportation, Commerce & Labor Committee.

IC budget bill in Senate committee
The Industrial Commission budget bill, which previously passed the House, has been sent to the Senate Transportation, Commerce & Labor Committee.  This bill does not contain substantive law changes.  As OAJ reported previously, an amendment that would require the Commission to maintain “scorecards” on hearing officer decisions was stopped.

Discrimination protection legislation awaits House vote
There is an agreement on HB 2, legislation amending Ohio’s laws protecting employees from discrimination and harassment in the workplace.  Fred Gittes, a well-known civil rights attorney who has led the opposition to this legislation for almost two decades, negotiated the bill with the Ohio Chamber of Commerce.   Fred is pleased to say that the bill does not harm your ability to bring a successful discrimination claim.  The Ohio Employment Lawyers Association and the OAJ are now neutral on the agreed-upon legislation.  The bill awaits a vote of the full House.

Structured settlements legislation introduced
Legislation amending the Ohio Structured Settlement Protection Act to regulate transfers of payment rights was just introduced in both the Ohio House and Senate.  This legislation was negotiated between the National Structured Settlement Trade Association and the National Association of Settlement Purchasers with OAJ’s input.   The bills await referral to committees.

Oklahoma scrambles to undo “loser pays”
In legislation intended to extend the time that child sex abuse victims can sue their abusers, the Oklahoma legislature enacted a “loser pays” provision that says the losing party pays legal fees for the winning party in all forms of civil and criminal litigation.  The bill’s author says this was a mistake and that the OK legislature will correct it.
