OAJ SIDEBAR

APRIL 27, 2017

BWC budget bill still in House committee
The House Insurance Committee is expected to vote next week on the BWC biennial budget bill. The bill contains several positive amendments that OAJ proposed and one negative one that slashes the statute of limitations for physical injuries from two years to one.  OAJ opposes the SOL cut.

IC budget bill clears House committee
The House Finance Committee passed the Industrial Commission budget bill, and did NOT add an amendment requiring the Commission to maintain “scorecards” on hearing officer decisions. The “scorecards” would categorize decisions as pro-injured worker or pro-employer.  OAJ joined the Commission to oppose the “scorecard” amendment.  The IC budget bill now goes to the House floor and then to the Ohio Senate.

WC for first responders with PTSD
Legislation establishing workers’ compensation coverage for police, firefighters and emergency medical workers without an accompanying physical injury has been introduced in both the House and Senate.  OAJ supports the concept, but has concerns because the bills curtail coverage after one year and offset the coverage if the claimant also receives disability payments from a state pension system.   The bills await referral to a committee.
