In Defense of Ohio’s Workers’ Comp. Rebates

PC360 writer Dave Postal, in his column “The Assault on State-Regulated Worker’ Comp,” is right when he calls workers’ compensation a critical component of our national "safety net." It is critical to our nation’s workforce because it ensures injured workers receive care, and it is critical to our businesses by largely protecting them from costly litigation.

However, in referring to recent action in Ohio, the article contains several errors. Governor John R. Kasich has proposed a $1 billion rebate to private and public employers. It is part of a three-part proposal to deal with net assets significantly above the guidelines established by our independent Board of Directors. The proposal also includes tripling our workplace safety grants and modernizing our billing process.
