TOPIC: Workers Compensation Retaliation
Join us to hear first hand about the recent (July 2016) Ohio Supreme Court decision that states that an employee does NOT have to prove his underlying workers' compensation injury was work related in order to file a workers' compensation retaliation claim pursuant to Ohio Revised Code Section 4123.90. Margaret O'Bryon will present an overview of the facts of the case, outline the requirements of Ohio Revised Code Section 4123.90, and provide highlights from the Supreme Court's decision. We will conclude with important "take aways" for HR to take back to their employer.
