JUNE 6, 2019

Workers’ comp legislation passes House         
The Ohio Bureau of Workers’ Compensation (BWC) budget bill, to which the House added several positive amendments, passed the House and now proceeds to the Senate.  OAJ supports the positive amendments, but opposes an amendment added on the House floor requiring the BWC to collect data about whether a claimant has the legal right to work in the US.

Contracts - SOL reduced to 3 years
Legislation reducing the statute of limitations for contracts to three years has been introduced.  The existing SOL for written contracts is eight years and for oral/implied contracts is six years.  The bill has been sent to the House Civil Justice Committee. 

OAJ has problems with the legislation and would like to hear from members.

Long arm statute introduced
A bill expanding a court's jurisdiction to include any basis consistent with the Ohio Constitution and the US Constitution has been introduced and awaits referral to a House committee.  OAJ supports extending Ohio’s long arm statute.

Oxycontin no longer paid by BWC
Starting June 1, the BWC will no longer pay for Oxycontin or generic oxycodone tablets for injured workers. Those currently on those medications will have until December 31 to discontinue their use or switch to a different product on the agency’s formulary.

BWC Fallen Workers Memorial Program
The Ohio Bureau of Workers’ Compensation announced its annual program honoring Ohio’s fallen workers will be Thursday, August 29, beginning at 10 am in the auditorium of the William Green Building in downtown Columbus. 

Judicial campaigns begin earlier
The Ohio Supreme Court adopted an amendment to the Code of Judicial Conduct to increase the time a judicial candidate’s campaign can start soliciting and receiving contributions.  Currently, a judicial candidate may receive contributions no earlier than 120 days before the primary election. The change increases that time to 180 days prior to the primary.  With the 2020 primary election being held on March 10, judicial candidates can begin fundraising on September 11, 2019.
