TAKE ACTION: Protect Workers Compensation for Undocumented Workers

Barkan Meizlish , June 9, 2017

The Ohio House recently passed, and the Ohio Senate is now considering legislation that would deny workers compensation benefits to undocumented workers who are seriously injured on the job.  The bill would also limit undocumented workers access to the courts for injuries suffered on the job. This bill is bad for all Ohio workers, and will work against those employers who comply with the law. If this bill passes, it will reduce the incentive for companies to provide safe conditions for its workers—and serious injuries among Ohio workers in the most dangerous industries will increase.
